Banno has a lovely article on the relationship between a filmmaker and his subject here:

My favourite line from the article, just to get you off your lazy ass and click on that link:

When he chooses to film a bar singer, he also chooses to film his own fascination for her.

I wonder how many filmmakers realize this, even when they don’t put themselves in the frame with their subject.
