This outtake excerpt from the Documentary Where Art Thou? project features a short conversation with renowned Northern Irish director John T. Davis and pioneering US documentarians  D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus. Pennebaker examines the development of storytelling in documentary and the drive and determination needed for this style of filmmaking.

Documentary Where Art Thou? is an unfinished project featuring a series of interviews with prominent Irish and international documentary filmmakers and examining the subject of documentary production. The interviews were filmed at workshops funded by Screen Training Ireland and include interviews with directors D.A. Pennebaker, Kim Longinotto, Les Blank, Peter Wintonick, Molly Dineen, Peter Lydon, Victor Kossakovsky and Jon Bang Carlsen. The documentary was never completed but IFI is delighted to feature exclusive outtake excerpts from the original interviews.
