Errol Morris' First person( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Amazing series primarily using Errol Morris' invention the Interrotron for unusual people to tell their outré stories directly into the camera to the viewer. Almost every half-hour documentary episode focused on 1 person, especially scientists, criminals, cranks, plus everyday folks in strange circumstances. First season seen on Bravo, second on IFC. ... Some subjects came from Morris' back-file, others were newly uncovered. First season included the autistic woman scientist who designs humane slaughterhouses (Temple Grandin, 'Stairway to Heaven'), the parrot whose testimony in a trial exonerated a man wrongly accused of murdering his owner, the ex-lobster fisherman devoted to being the first to see a live giant squid ('Eyeball to Eyeball'), and a serial killer groupie. Second season had some 2 parters such as a haunted passenger who landed a crashing jet liner, also the entrepreneur who believes first mate Gilligan is the new messiah! Errol Morris hoped to continue 'First Person,' but funding was unavailable."
