Docs In Progress Screening in Washington DC on Tuesday, January 8. Details in Hidden Section below.

Every other month, Docs In Progress showcases works in progress by DC-area and visiting documentary filmmakers. Following a screening of each film, moderators and Docs In Progress founders Adele Schmidt and Erica Ginsberg lead the audience in a feedback session with the filmmakers.

This month we will be screening two films, one of which looks at the concept of female beauty and the other on developmental disabilities in children. Do the filmmakers effectively convey how these characteristics affect their main characters? Do their stories flow? This is your opportunity to tell us and the filmmakers what you think in a friendly and nurturing environment.

We'll be screening:

BEAUTY: IN THE EYES OF THE BEHELD
by Liza Figueroa
56 minutes
What draws together a pageant queen, a physician, a legal assistant, an exotic dancer, a television production assistant, and a musician who used to work with Prince? They have all been called "beautiful." But what does beauty really mean to them? Surprising stories emerge as they talk about childhood, careers, relationships, and life happiness.

LEARNING FROM JAMES
by Kendra Rubinfeld
56 minutes
Children with developmental disabilities are often referred to as special. This film helps show why, as we follow the lives of four children with mental retardation through their daily lives with their friends and families.

Filmmakers Liza Figueroa and Kendra Rubinfeld will be in attendance and look forward to hearing your feedback on their works in progress to help them finish their films.
