Stranger With a Camera
Documentary
 
At the conclusion of a film shoot in Appalachia, a mountain man confronted a member of the film crew, then shot and killed him. In this documentary, Stranger with a Camera, the tragedy is explored as a study of the media's role in American life. In an effort to gain perspective, filmmakers address issues regarding media images, as well as the inability of some communities to deal with what the images represent. There are interviews that reveal the motivations behind this tragic act and the complexity of how the media is perceived.~ Alice Day, All Movie Guide Rated No Rating .
