Cam Williams’ Top 10 Documentaries of 2013

The format of documentary filmmaking was redefined in 2013 with exceptional directors challenging the way stories are told. There has been a really good mix of traditional ‘talking head’ docos, incredible tales of investigative journalism and experimental films that highlight the importance of the medium to expose a hidden truth or examine the human condition. For this reason I’ve decided to give documentaries their own list this year. A few docos may be left over from 2012 but they only made their way to Australia and into my eyeballs in 2013 via a delayed release or film festival.
