Directors Fisher Stevens and Alexis Bloom started filming a documentary about Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds in 2014. They simply expected to make an intimate portrait of an extraordinary mother-daughter duo, never imagining that both of their subjects would pass away in December within a day of each other. Stevens and Bloom talk about the shock of those losses--and the joys and challenges of making their new documentary Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds for HBO.
