Kartemquin's co-founder and artistic director Gordon Quinn is quoted in a recent article about ethics in filmmaking on the IDA (International Documentary Assocation) website, documentary.org. In A Question of Ethics: The Relationship between Filmmaker and Subject, Gordon describes how "he makes a point of trying to give the viewer a sense of how the story is being told and what the filmmakers' relationship with the subject is like," using In the Family and Prisoner of Her Past as examples.
With a noted tradition of nurturing emerging talent and acting as a leading voice for independent media, Kartemquin is building on more than 50 years of history as Chicago’s documentary powerhouse.
