ScreenTalk Short: Pietra Brettkelly

ScreenTalk Interviews – 2019

Kiwi Pietra Brettkelly travels the globe making documentaries. In this ScreenTalk Short interview, she talks about her work: the unusual story revealed during beauty contest film Beauty Will Save the World, making adoption story The Art Star and the Sudanese Twins, why Māori Boy Genius is not her best doco, and hearing about a legendary Afghan repository of films featured in A Flickering Truth. She also talks about Yellow is Forbidden — another project where she doesn't speak the same language as her subject.

The full version of this interview was first uploaded on 23 November 2015.
