Interisland Terminal is proud to present DOUG PRAY, one of the most articulate voices in documentary film.
An explorer of American subcultures and maverick individuals, Pray's films have introduced the world to misunderstood industries, underdogs, and dedicated, independent people whose stories that speak celebrate how much we all have in common in finding a unique approach to life.
We will be screening three Doug Pray documentaries, including his most recent work, Levitated Mass. Doug Pray will introduce each film with a primer on his approach to one aspect of documentary filmmaking and follow each film with a Q&A session with the audience.

PRIMER ON INTERVIEWS: different kinds of interviews (from reluctant main subjects to man-on-the-street short interviews), and how dialog forms the basis of my film’s narrative flow.
