Local Filmmaking’s Opportunity

Nicole Triche is a professor at Elon University and director of All Skate, Everybody Skate, a documentary about the 50-year-old Topsail Island Skate Rink located above a rural post office and the woman who runs it all. Triche discusses why documentaries are such a powerful medium and how filmmakers in small, rural areas are increasingly able to cover global issues through their own town’s stories.
