Here's an excerpt from Night Flight's interview with D.A. Pennebaker, who "invented the modern genre of direct documentary filmmaking," as Night Flight's Pat Prescott told us in her introduction to our segment on the eight episode of our IFC channel show, which aired in 2018. During the episode, we excerpted here from Night Flight's interview with D.A. Pennebaker from the 1980s, and also included part of his film "Daybreak Express," a kinetically-edited 16mm Kodachrome ride he'd taken on New York City's "Third Avenue "El" elevated railway, which was originally shot by Pennebaker in 1953 (the railway was demolished soon after).
