Broomfield: 'Bush Is Fantastic For Documentaries'
British film-maker NICK BROOMFIELD credits US President GEORGE W BUSH's outspoken behaviour and opinions with providing a new school of documentary-makers with fantastic material.
Broomfield - famous for AILEEN: LIFE AND DEATH OF A SERIAL KILLER, an insight into MONSTER inspiration AILEEN WUORNOS' motives - also believes the amalgamation of the American media has opened the door for high-grossing feature length documentaries.
The 57-year-old tells British magazine HOTDOG, "I think George Bush has done a fantastic amount for the documentary movement because his behaviour has been so outrageous.
"And I think as the big media corporations have assumed more independent companies it's become harder for the American public to get information.
"That has enabled a whole school of documentary films to come into being... it's a radical time."09/03/2005 17:51
