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.”
