Interviewing with Care: Documenting Stories of State Violence

This guide is for activists, advocates, journalists, filmmakers and anyone conducting interviews on camera for advocacy, media, historical or artistic purposes with individuals who have been directly impacted by state-sanctioned violence, such as abuse by police, corrections officers, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Border Patrol, etc.

This guidance will assist you in ensuring that your approach and conduct before, during, and after filming the interview, whether in person or remote, respect the dignity and human rights of your interviewee.
