Bringing True Stories to the Screen

Sundance alumni Brendan Bellomo (Porcelain War) and Mari Bakke Riise (A New Kind of Wilderness) gather to talk about the art of translating true stories to the screen, balancing sensitivity to subjects and the need to shape real-life into cinema.


Brendan Bellomo was the VFX supervisor on the Best Picture Oscar nominee Beasts of the Southern Wild. Porcelain War is his feature film directorial debut.


For the last ten years Mari Bakke Riise has directed numerous documentaries for film and television. Maris focus is to give new insight and foster social change through documentary films. She is the director behind the documentary Kayayo which won 17 first prize awards and got shortlisted for an Oscar nomination.
