[55]Many other filmmakers strenuously differ. "Few in documentary were as clear (and as legendary) as Stoney was about the importance of people being in control of the media being made about them. In his words: 'People should do their own filming, or at least feel they control the content. I've spent much of my life making films about teachers or preachers that these people ought to have made about themselves."
