Maybe it was a sign... 5 Broken Cameras is an intensely personal documentary made by a resident of Bil'in called Emad Burnat , who started filming his life, t...

PORTRAIT OF A MAN, a review

user
  PORTRAIT OF A MAN (Finland, 2010) by director Visa Koiso-Kanttila screened in competition at this year’s Thessaloniki Doc Fest to international audiences.

While a true story, this has the feeling of a fiction film as it follows one main character and his personal search for truth. A Finnish man, Kalle Rissanen, is in now in his 40s. His father killed himself at the same age and r...

Building A Bridge To Peace

What one of the great benefits (and joys) of an event like the AFI-Discovery Channel Documentary Festival is the presentation of films that go behind the news headlines and offer a portrait of the complexity and urgency of political and social events. The simple idea behind many of the films here is that the more we know, the more we understand, the more we can do. In the case of finding solutions to some of the world's most complicated issues, none is more pressing than the need t...

Shuttling Between Hopefulness To Desperation (And Back Again)

user
At a film festival such as IDFA that is exclusively devoted to documentary film, a dedicated viewer (which, at a minimum of 4 films per day, qualifies me) cannot help but be constantly batted from feelings of outrage and anger to feelings of optimism and hope. Documentaries, unlike any other art form, really get under your skin with real lives, some of them quite desperate and terribly sad, that break down the tenuous barrier of us versus them. To really appreciate a documentary, it is important...
