Barbara Kopple

Oscar-winning Filmmaker Barbara Kopple

Barbara Kopple’s film “Harlan County USA” was distributed by Don Rugoff and her stories of that experience were among the inspirations for “Searching For Mr. Rugoff.” In this outtake clip, Barbara tells the story of the early history of the film, when she had no idea that it would become the sensation that it became. Apologies for the occasional soft focus. The camera was acting up that day.
