Fair vs Balanced

I love hearing from other documentary filmmakers about their process and the way they see and experience story, and Marshall Curry's latest piece – where he dissects a dichotomy of sorts that he sets up as the difference between fair and balanced – particularly spoke to me. As much as this relates to the whole process of filmmaking, much of it really comes down to what happens in the editing. The themes of how much to include from disenting voices, what's fair to the audience, and what the duties of a filmmaker are to present "all sides" of an issue, are questions that come up a lot for many of us, myself included, and I found Marshall's well articulated thoughts on the subject to be clarifying and empowering.
