About the 'Early Reels' Field

A great many first documentaries, most of them short, emerge from the hands of film-school students or training workshop participants. While conditions and constraints vary from one school to the next, these places are above all spaces for experimentation and creation. Films that are spontaneous, patched together or industrious, experiments or a stroke of genius, all made in settings that offer more freedom than commercial production companies.
