Full Frame passes on sale
The 14th incarnation of the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival will be April 14–17 here in downtown Durham.
If you’d like a free copy of last year’s program guide to work on your netflix queue, please know they are out for the taking at our monthly open studios on the Third Friday of each month (in addition to Wednesday afternoons when we have foyer gallery hours). I highly recommend How to Fold A Flag, The Poot, Last Train Home, Summer Pasture, Wasteland, and China Blue. We heard that Restrepo was incredible, and of course if you are a Kinks fan “Do It Again” is pretty much required viewing.
The program guide also features two great essays. “Chair-Making, Ship-Breaking, Pole-Dancing, Coal-Mining, Thread-Cutting, Cart-Pushing, Cane-Cutting, Chain-Forging: Films on Work & Labor” was written by filmmakers Steven Bognar and Juia Reichert and details their choices for last year’s thematic program of the same name. Full Frame’s director of programming Sadie Tillery wrote an essay on the work and approach of Liz Garbus and Rory Kennedy, who were the recipients of last year’s Career Award.
