Based on a True Story (Documentary)

Based on a True Story is a feature length documentary currently in development (some scenes have been filmed in Yangon, Myanmar).  

The story explores truth and authenticity in documentaries through the lens of filmmakers struggling to tell stories from inside countries that suppress the media.  The narrative 

investigates the shifting intersection of authenticity, suppression and audience reception through the perspectives of three documentarians.
