I’m planning this at the last minute, but I may try to travel up to Durham this weekend for the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. As usual, there are a number of interesting films on the schedule. Among the films/events I’m interested in checking out: AJ Schnack’s Kurt Cobain: About a Son; Jessica Yu’s Protagonist (her previous film was In the Realms of the Unreal); Godfrey Cheshire’s Moving Midway; and Steve Connors and Molly Bingham’s Meeting Resistance. Mark Craig’s Talk to Me, which comiles twenty years of answering machine messages also sounds compelling. Other suggestions are welcome, but given my teaching schedule, I may only make it up to Durham, which is about one-two hours from Fayetteville, for one day.
Operation Homecoming, which I caught a few weeks ago is also playing. It should also be airing on PBS in the next few days. BTW, documentary bloggers, if you’re going to be in Durham, let me know and maybe we can grab a coffee or something.
Update: Oh, and I can’t believe that I forgot to mention that there will be a screening of three new Jem Cohen films. Chain is still one of my favorite films from the last two or three years.
