Scene Breakdown: On the Ground

Telling the story of what happened on Ruby Ridge in 1992—when a standoff between the Weaver family and the federal government turned deadly—took a great deal of investigation and trust. In this Scene Breakdown, director Barak Goodman explains how he combined never-before-seen footage shot by the marshals on the ground, with surveillance footage, and original interviews. He also discusses how his team gained access to Ruby Ridge through Sara Weaver, the eldest daughter of the Weaver family, who was present during the 1992 siege.
