NW Documentary practices, teaches, and shares the art of non-fiction storytelling. We illuminate important stories that would otherwise be lost or overlooked, provide experiential learning opportunities, and generate better understanding, appreciation, and dialog within our community.
We believe real stories matter. They not only entertain, but they can enlighten. They can move us deeply, and change the world as we see it forever. In the process of gathering stories, meeting new people, and learning of their experiences, we break down invisible barriers of age, gender, class, and ethnicity. Documentary stories bring us together to question and to celebrate. With this value and this passion, we create original works of documentary art, teach others to tell their own stories, and gather community together in the sharing of significant stories of our diverse, yet shared, experiences.
