Born On This Day – July 15, 1925

D.A. Pennebaker - Don't Look Back“Various people began calling our films ‘direct cinema’, others called it cinema verité, but nobody really knew what to call them. Some even called it ‘fly-on-the-wall’ but this wasn’t right, at least I never wanted to be a fly on the wall, it’s a kind of disgusting idea.” –D.A. Pennebaker
