Story and honesty are needed now more than ever in an era of ¡®fake news,¡¯ half-truths, and technical virtuosity.¡± ¡¤ John de Graaf, Director of Affluenza and fifteen other national PBS documentaries ¡°Stephen Most¡¯s take on nonfiction storytelling is unique, compelling, and wonderfully expressed.¡± ¡¤ Alexa Dilworth, Publishing Director and Senior Editor, Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University ¡°This outstanding book interweaves its author¡¯s personal experiences and documentary case studies to excellent effect. Students, teachers, filmmakers, and other storytellers will find it an engaging and informative resource.¡± ¡¤ Maggie Stogner, American University Since the beginning of human history, stories have helped people make sense of their lives and their world. Today, an understanding of storytelling is invaluable as we seek to orient ourselves within a flood of raw information and an unprecedented variety of supposedly true accounts. In Stories Make the World, award-winning screenwriter Stephen Most offers a captivating, refreshingly heartfelt exploration of how documentary filmmakers and other storytellers come to understand their subjects and cast light on the world through their art. Drawing on the author¡¯s decades of experience behind the scenes of television and film documentaries, this is an indispensable account of the principles and paradoxes that attend the quest to represent reality truthfully.
