All Together 2014


Covering the 2014 IWP Fall Residency, the documentary All Together provides insight into the work of 29 writers from all around the world, their time spent in Iowa City, and the filmmaking process. Each writer contributed to the documentary in some way. Many of the writers assisted in capturing footage to use throughout the film as the cameras were passed from one hand to another. Directed by Raj Chakrapani, All Together is a Community Engagement project from 2014 IWP Fall Resident Andra Rotaru.
