By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Albert Maysles has created more than 3 dozen films - many of which are landmarks in documentary filmmaking. He and his brother David were pioneers in non-fiction feature films, and their work includes Salesman, Gimme Shelter and Grey Gardens. The power of truth lies at the core of Maysles' work, but it is love that drives it. "After all," he says, "the knowledge of the real world is exactly what we need to better understand and therefore possibly to love one another." Maysles is in Salt Lake City, and joins Doug Fabrizio in studio to talk about his career and the world he sees through his lens.
