Matthew Heineman, the BAFTA- and Oscar- nominated director, is one of the most exciting documentary filmmakers working today. His films City of Ghosts (awarded Doc/Fest’s Grand Jury Award 2017) and Cartel Land (awarded Doc/Fest’s Tim Hetherington Award 2015) offered searing comment on the fight against ISIS and the war on drugs. Doc/Fest welcomes Matthew back to Sheffield to discuss these films and his new documentary series The Trade depicting the US heroin epidemic.

Supported by BAFTA

Two episodes of The Trade directed by Matthew Heineman, are screening at the festival.
