Dear Albert Maysles, what are your guidelines for making a documentary?
As part of a Paper Magazine profile of Albert Maysles and his life at home with wife Gillian, photographer Todd Selby asked Maysles a simple, handwritten question. And Maysles responded.
SELBY: Albert Maysles, what are your guidelines for making a documentary?
MAYSLES: Shoot on video. Fim scenes, events, not interviews. Let things happen without your control.
