Albert Maysles is a documentary filmmaker that I look up to. I love reading his interviews and chit chat about non-fiction film. I just found this quote by him. I love it.

“As a documentarian I happily place my fate and faith in reality. It is my caretaker, the provider of subjects, themes, experiences – all endowed with the power of truth and the romance of discovery. And the closer I adhere to reality the more honest and authentic my tales. After all, the knowledge of the real world is exactly what we need to better understand and therefore possibly to love one another. It’s my way of making the world a better place.”Albert Maysles
