"Documentarians are supposed to be objective, to avoid having any effect on the story. And yet we have more effect than anyone because we decide to tell it. And we decide how it ends. Will your story be yet another sad one of yet another man who just wanted to be happy? Or, will your story acknowledge the very nature of stories and embrace the fact that sharing the sad ones can sometimes make them happy?"
