No other murder in history has produced as much speculation or persistent conspiracy theories as the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Many Americans still find it hard to believe that a seemingly inconsequential man, Lee Harvey Oswald, acting alone killed someone as consequential as JFK. What really happened fifty years ago at Dealey Plaza? DocGroup’s documentary The Kennedy Assassination: Beyond Conspiracy separates fact from fiction to get to the truth. To learn more click here.
DocGroup’s President and Executive Producer, Tom Yellin will speak on a panel today at DOC NYC. Presented by Dan Cogan (Impact Partners), the panel will address the recent trend of documentary filmmakers acting as news journalists (e.g. Laura Poitras on Edward Snowden; The Invisible War on sex abuse in the military). Joined by Andrew Jarecki (Capturing the Friedmans) and writer Philip Gourevitch (The New Yorker), Tom and Dan will explore the idea of doc filmmakers as the new source of breaking news.
The panel is free to attend! To find out more about DOC NYC click here.
