Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine75 - Revlock: Looking at your career, I noticed that you bounce between fiction films and documentaries with relative frequency. Do you have a medium preference? MacDonald: I like fiction films because I feel like Iím still learning. Thatís one of the fun things about fiction. I donít think you could ever really learn everything about it. Working with actors is so fascinating and unpredictable. I like documentaries because you get to learn about the world. Iím doing a film about a Chinese artist right now, and Iíve been enjoying immersing myself in this singular world. Itís like being a journalist.
