Documentarian. He was a pioneering figure in documentary filmmaking history. Having studied philosophy and photography at the University of Harvard, he turned to motion pictures, and in 1967 made a significant contribution to "direct cinema" (that is, "fly-on-the-wall observational filmmaking") with "Black Natchez". He helped start the film school at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the 1970s and taught at Harvard into the early 1980s. He left filmmaking entirely in the 1980s and spent much of the next 30 years running a successful flower farm in Vermont.  (bio by: Member#47194125)
