Tuesday, Feb. 23rd
This free salon series brings together documentary film aficionados to discuss and debate issues, elements and genres of documentary cinema. This month's topic will focus on personal documentaries. First-person films have become more and more common in the past 30 years. We will look at several different approaches to personal films and discuss what they say about the filmmaker, his or her world, the larger society, and the voyeuristic role of the audience.
The Documentary Appreciation Salon is organized by the non-profit arts organization Docs In Progress and takes place in odd months at their headquarters in downtown Silver Spring and in even months at the Modern Times Coffeehouse at Politics and Prose. RSVP through the Docs In Progress website (www.docsinprogress.org) is highly recommended.
