Two-time Academy Award nominee Marshall Curry talks about getting to the heart of the story.




These elements are central to any story, whether it’s a web video shot on an iphone, or a mega-budget theatrical film.

Filmmakers use these elements to craft stories that connect us to other people, and their situations.

Marshall Curry’s If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front takes us into the life of a convicted “eco-terrorist” to look at how a New York City kid, who hadn’t so much as seen wilderness growing up, gets involved with a radical environmental group.

“I like having an excuse to go into people’s lives and ask them personal questions about what they do and why they do it.”

Curry lets the characters tell their own stories, and he weaves together this personal footage into a captivating and complex film.
