‘The Realness’ Episode 7: New York Film Festival and ‘Blood Brother’

This week we look back at some of our favorite films from the New York Film Festival. Their documentary slate this year was a diverse bunch, formally and otherwise. Highlights include The Square, Particle Fever, and Frederick Wiseman’s At Berkeley. Then we turn to this week’s big new release, Sundance Audience and Jury Prize winner Blood Brother.

We discuss director Steve Hoover’s very personal storytelling style, and whether it keeps necessary context out of the film.
