Power of Ten

Via the cinetrix, the latest on the 2007 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. The fest just announced its “thematic program” and, like the cinetrix, I’m impressed:

Ten years, ten curators, ten films. Artists who have contributed to Full Frame these last ten years return to reflect on the decade and show the films that have influenced their understanding of it in our curated series called The Power of Ten.

Martin Scorsese
Mira Nair
St. Clair Bourne
Julia Reichert
D.A. Pennebaker
Ariel Dorfman
Walter Mosley
Charles Burnett
Cara Mertes
Michael Moore

We are asking the curators to chose a film to screen at the festival and to write an essay about the past ten years, their impact on them personally, and why this film is relevant.

This program sounds fantastic, a great way for me to bring spring semester to a close. FFDFF takes place April 12-15, right up the road in Durham.
