What Is the Role of the Filmmaker in a Time of Unprecedented Upheaval?

Black Lives Matter Protest and Filmmakers
We are living in interesting times, to say the least. In the grand scheme of this nation's history and the history of the world, there may be only so many moments that compare to the ones we are passing through today. 

Prior generations fought similar battles and faced similar challenges. They have in fact faced this very same battle time and again. But there is something very different about this time right now and it relates to you. You, the filmmaker. 

Do filmmakers have an obligation to soak up the truth of the world they live in? How important is the role of film and video technology at this moment? What can you do? How can you do it safely? We also talk about our favorite movies about this subject matter.

Another great pod, it would be great if you could link to the reccomendations and any relevant mentioned articles, movies, tidbits, tech stuff etc etc.
If I dont google while im listening (which is hard when driving and listening) I end up spending a bunch of time trying to re find the part of the podcast it was mentioned, and then guess the spelling etc etc.

TL:DR - great pod, just looking for dem hyperlinks baby

Observe social distancing and shelter in place. And only leave your home for the bare necessities until a Covid-19 immunization is available and has provided herd immunity for the entire nation.
