Do Documentaries Really Matter?

user
After the intense (and enjoyable) experience of sitting through at least 15 documentary feature films over 4 days at the just concluded AFI-Discovery Channel Documentary Festival, the question organically arose: do documentaries really matter?

Faith And Film: SILVERDOCS Finds Religion

user
Thursday, June 15----One of the tenets of the American system of governing is a strict separation of church and state.

This seperation between church doctrine and the rule of law has been scrupulously followed but that wall is definitely crumbling. A number of documentaries premiering at the SILVERDOCS festival this week,...
