We last spoke to documentary director Ashley Sabin back in 2007 for Kamp Katrina, the feature doc she co-directed with David Redmon. She joins us again to discuss their new documentary, Girl Model and how access can shape the form of a project from the earliest stages.

We really wanted viewers to experience it like we did which is that sort of uncomfortable, from your gut feeling that “OK, this doesn’t feel right!”
