Errol Morris
Film contributor Garen Daly guest hosts

In Errol Morris' new book Believing is Seeing, the Oscar-winning filmmaker takes on the authenticity of photographs, the "trueness" of pictures that have become iconic - hooded shots of Abu Ghraib prisoners, Roger Fenton's Into the Shadow of the Valley of Death, and old Depression-era renderings. Morris travels back from the moment of the shot, retracing the photographer's steps, reconstructing all the disparate threads of events that led up to and include that final, indelible image. And like his filmmaking it is singular, memorable, and exhaustive in its treatment of the subject.

Errol Morris first gained recognition for his 1988 documentary The Thin Blue Line, about a Texas man wrongly implicated in a shooting. He followed with a string of successful films including Fast, Cheap and Out of Control, The Fog of War  - for which he won an Academy Award - and his latest, Tabloid. He joins us today to talk about his new book and his long and varied filmmaking career.
