Step 1 in Making a Documentary: Never Quit!
We spoke with documentary filmmaker Micha X. Peled at the 2012 Human Rights Film Festival in New York City.

In China, his crew got arrested. Here in the States, he spent six months in the wrong town. In some of his movies he rarely spoke the language of his subjects. But he never quit, and that seems to be what it takes.
