Laura Poitras

EdgelandsO´Say Can You See

The film language developed by filmmaker and artist Laura Poitras (*1964 in Boston, lives in New York and Berlin) is committed to the tradition of cinéma vérité as well as to the effort to trace structures and conflicts that essentially shape political and civil life, yet remain mostly hidden. Her works focus on those complex developments that evade democratic processes in the United States and other countries as counterterrorism measures.
