Nancy Buirski: Award-Winning Documentary Filmmaker

From a New York Times obit by Sam Roberts headlined “Nancy Buirski, Award-Winning Documentary Filmmaker, Dies at 78”:

Nancy Buirski, an Emmy and Peabody Award-winning documentary filmmaker whose eye was honed as a still photographer and picture editor, died at her home in Manhattan. .

After founding the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival in 1998 at Duke University, and directing it for a decade, Ms. Buirski made her own first documentary, “The Loving Story,” in 2011.

The film explored the case of Mildred and Richard Loving, who faced imprisonment because their interracial marriage in 1958 was illegal in Virginia. (She was part-Black and part-Native American, and he was white.)
