Stranger With a Camera

Elizabeth Barret's 2000 video documentary revisits a 1967 incident in which a landowner in an eastern Kentucky coal-mining town killed a Canadian broadcaster who was trying to document poverty in Appalachia. Eyewitnesses, media colleagues, and trial lawyers recall the motives and emotions behind the case, and the fact that Barret, a native of the area, took up filmmaking around the same time adds an extra layer to this heartfelt examination of a community thrust into the spotlight against its will. 62 min.
