After a short break, Hidden Documentary is back in action this week with the second part of our interview with producer John Smithson.

In part two, we look at John’s work with The Falling Man, a controversial documentary about one man who jumped from the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.  John discusses the role of trust and timing in documentary making to transform an ordinary story into an extraordinary story.
