For DC-area folks...
Docs In Progress is excited to partner this year with the Our City Film Festival to present a special Work-In-Progress Screening as part of their fourth annual festival. It will take place this Sunday, February 13 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm at the Goethe Institut in Chinatown.
We are especially excited because both of the films being featured are by filmmakers whose previous films were also shown at Docs In Progress so they know what to expect and are ready for your feedback on their rough cuts:
SHE'S A SENSEI (20 minute rough cut)
by Michael Blain
Carol Middleton is a seventh-degree taekwondo black belt and a pioneering female martial artist. This film chronicles Carol's journey from the midwest to Washington DC where she founded and directs the DC Self-Defense Karate Association, working with students of all backgrounds and ages.
LETTING IN THE JUNGLE (40 minute rough cut)
by Jesse Achtenberg
Follow young explorer James Graham of Anacostia as he uncovers the hidden lives of urban wildlife, and what their increasing presence in our backyards means for environmental education. As the challenges faced by eagles, osprey, deer, foxes and coyotes are revealed, James begins to uncover why conservation pioneers are increasingly looking at the concrete jungle to teach environmental values.
