The Imposter Syndrome + Conversation with Doc Filmmaker, Lourdes Portillo
Do you consider yourself a documentary filmmaker or is that a term that you are hesitant to give yourself?
Is theresomething that is holding you back from your first documentary film?
Perhaps what’s keeping you from being a doc filmmaker, or making your doc film, or living your doc life, is something called imposter syndrome.
Imposter syndrome is a concept that basically describes the inability of an individual to internalize one’s accomplishments as well as having a persistent fear of being exposed as a fraud. And I’m convinced that so many of us doc filmmakers experience this at some point in time in our own doc lives. Which is what we’ll take a look at in our opening segment of today’s podcast.
