In 1967 eastern Kentucky, Hobart Ison shot and 
killed Canadian filmmaker Hugh O'Connor who was 
documenting conditions of poverty in Appalachia. Elizabeth Barret's STRANGER WITH A CAMERA 
revisits this tragedy to explore the complex relationship 
between filmmakers and the communities they portray.
