Pelosi, the congresswoman's youngest daughter, says it’s her stealthy approach — she uses a small, hand-held camera and films her subjects unobtrusively — that allows her to capture a person as they are as opposed to how they may act for a camera.

And the Democratic leader is well aware of her daughter’s style, the filmmaker said.

“She knows when I have a camera in my hand. It means not to open your mouth,” Pelosi said.
