Justin Schein is the kind of documentary filmmaker that most of us aspire to be. He is a thoughtful, sensitive, and articulate technician dedicated to his craft. And his latest film, Left on Purpose is the kind of intelligent, compassion, and in the end, impossible to forget, film that we aspire to make.


I was honoured and proud to have a shared conversation with Justin on the eve of the world wide release of his film. It’s an engaging, heartfelt look at not only what it means to live a documentary life, but just how one tackles the ethical issues that a film like Left on Purpose poses.
