Documentary Appreciation Salon
This salon series, moderated by Docs In Progress co-founder Erica Ginsberg, brings together filmmakers and documentary film aficionados to discuss and debate great issues in documentary cinema. Each salon focuses around a particular sub-genre of documentary and use clips from documentary films and questions from the moderator to spur reflection and discussion. As a way to encourage greater discourse on documentary film, this series is free to the public.
This month's topic will focus on how place is approached in documentaries. While sometimes just a setting or backdrop, the location or locations of a documentary can often be almost a character in and of itself. How do different documentarians treat the role of place in their films? We will look and discuss a number of clips from classic and contemporary documentaries. This program is sponsored by Modern Times Coffeehouse at Politics & Prose Bookstore.
