Docs In Progress is partnering with NomadsLand to curate a special international edition of our popular works-in-progress screenings. After a worldwide call with excerpts from the finalists posted on the NomadsLand.com website, we have selected two documentary rough cuts to be screened and critiqued by a live audience with out-of-town filmmakers participating in the discussion via Skype.
WHEN? Sunday, February 17 at 6:30 pm. The screening will end no later than 10 pm.
WHERE? Busboys and Poets 2021 14th Street (at V Street), NW Washington DC. Closest Metro: U Street/Cardozo Metro Station. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A DIFFERENT LOCATION FROM OUR USUAL WASHINGTON DC PROGRAMS.
HOW MUCH? $5 (cash only, at the door). Cost includes the screening and discussion only. Food and drink are available at cost from Busboys and Poets.
COMRADES by Dean Hamer
Struggling against 5000 years of Confucian tradition and a communist government that views any type of organizing with suspicion, China's gay community is finding novel ways to fit into the fabric of modern society without hiding who they really are.
CASA (HOUSE) by Luis Alaejos and Raúl Díez Alaejos
In what was once the tallest building in all of South America, 1500 neighbors of all social classes co- exist. This is a portrait of Montevideo's Palacio Salvo and its occupants: artists of little and great renown, recent arrivals attracted by the building's bohemian atmosphere, those who want to leave, but can't, and those who are the ghosts of a building's faded past.
Please come join us and pass the word on. Filmmakers and non-filmmakers alike are welcome to attend and participate.
