Filmmaker Interview: Tina DiFeliciantonio and Jane Wagner (2010)



Their collaboration began at Stanford University's masters film program, where DiFeliciantonio made her directing debut with the student Oscar-winning Living With AIDS, which was one the first films on the subject to be nationally broadcast on PBS in 1988. Since then, Wagner and DiFeliciantonio have tackled a wide range of subjects — such as sustainable energy, teenage sexuality, child abuse, war time rape, LGBT civil rights, social justice, art and science — garnering dozens of top honors, including two National Emmy Awards and the Sundance Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary. In this exclusive interview with POV's Yance Ford, DiFeliciantonio and Wagner look back on their films and discuss their process, their subjects and their filmmaking philosophy.

Watch a 1998 interview with the filmmakers about their POV short film, Two or Three Things But Nothing For Sure.
