‘O.J.: Made in America’ Filmmaker on Bringing Focus to a Tremendous Amount of Archival Material

"The whole film is about who we are and what we bring to these stories and how we look at them."

Filmmaker Ezra Edelman talks to Filmmaker Magazine‘s Alix Lambert about his seven-and-a-half-hour O.J. Simpson documentary, O.J.: Made in America (premiering on ESPN June 11th). The mammoth film involved finding and putting together a huge amount of archival footage.

“The whole film is about who we are and what we bring to these stories and how we look at them,” explains Edelman. “I have a distinct way of looking at this story and then by the same token in terms of what the final product is – every person that worked on the film, especially the editors — how much something is driven by what goes on creatively inside these people’s heads.”
