Quote by Dorothy Todd Hénaut

"In the two years of Challenge for Change, the filmmaker has called more and more on the participation of the people involved. Filmmakers deeply concerned with social problems are finding themselves becoming social animators. They are discovering the power of the process of filmmaking. The question now is, should the filmmaker become a social animator, or should social animators, community organizers, community development officers and local agitators become filmmakers? This has become quite a question of controversy in filmmaking circles, but Challenge for Change, in the meantime, is trying all the alternatives."

Quote about Dorothy Todd Hénaut

"The two women who persuaded us to launch our first community videotape project were no ordinary film-makers. Dorothy Henaut and Bonnie Klein brought to the task a philosophy about democratic participation that shaped every aspect of the work, from the way to run training classes to the way editorial decisions are made. It is largely their concept, their way of working, which guides social animators, teachers and community leaders generally who are now applying Challenge for Change techniques across Canada."
-- George C. Stoney (source)
