DC-area folks, it's high time for another Docs In Progress Work in Progress screening, don't you think? Join us this Friday night.
Docs In Progress is back with a triple feature of works-in-progress in Washington DC. The program is sponsored by The Documentary Center at The George Washington University.
Following a screening of each film, the audience will be invited to participate in a feedback session with the filmmakers to help them get to the next stage of completing their films.
JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF ARTOMATIC (3 minute trailer)
by Jay Krasnow
Artomatic began with 350 visual artists a decade ago and has grown into a Washington institution which attracts more than 1,000 artists, musicians, comedians, poets, and filmmakers and is a model for grassroots arts festivals.
LIFE ON DEATH BEACH (7 minute segment)
by Jeff Arak
A coastal town in Oaxaca is a microcosm of struggles for recognition within Mexican society, as told from a group of volunteer lifeguards or the patients and therapists at a center working to rehabilitate people with disabilities.
FORGOTTEN SOLDIERS (80 minute rough cut)
by Donald Plata
Considered one of the most elite groups of the U.S. army during the Second World War, the Phillipine Scouts were credited with one of the greatest success stories for the Allies in the Pacific – keeping Japan from invading Australia. Although they fought America's first major ground battle of the war, their story remains largely unknown.
