Catch Oscar-winning director's Q+A at Doc Edge screenings

Director and journalist Carol Dysinger directed the short film Learning to Skateboard in a Warzone (if you're a girl) which won both the OSCAR® and the BAFTA for best short documentary. Her latest doco, One Bullet, screens at this year's Doc Edge Festival. 

Dysinger will be attending the World Premiere of One Bullet in Auckland on Friday 2 June and in Wellington on Thursday 8 June, with a Q+A after each screening. 

Dysinger spent 15 years in and out of Afghanistan capturing stories of America’s longest war. Camp Victory, Afghanistan revealed the complex relationship between the Afghan Army and American troops sent to train them. An investigation into the shooting of a young boy in Kabul triggered the making of One Bullet, an intimate exploration of one civilian casualty.
What begins as procedural turns into something more intimate as Dysinger and the boy's mother become friends, despite everything that should divide them. But then come the Taliban. This is a war story unlike any other. 

Prior to directing documentariess, Professor Dysinger edited documentaries and features, and was a screenwriter in Los Angeles.
