DocuDay LA 2013 Screening Schedule
Question and Answers session to follow screening when filmmaker is available.
Shorts Program 1 - 9:00 AM
Jon Alpert and Matthew O'Neill
They are New York City’s gleaners—struggling at the edge of our society. You see them on almost every street corner in America’s richest city—thousands of jobless New Yorkers combing through the garbage, scooping through the slime. The prize they pursue? Empty bottles and cans. Each discarded container worth five cents at the redemption center.
Mondays at Racine
Cynthia Wade and Robin Honan
Every third Monday of the month, two bold, brassy sisters open the doors of their Long Island hair salon to women diagnosed with cancer. As locks of hair fall to the floor, women gossip, giggle, weep, face their fears, and discover unexpected beauty.
5 BROKEN CAMERAS - 11:00 AM
Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi
As Israeli settlers begin building homes and erecting a barrier wall in the West Bank village of Bil'in, a Palestinian farm worker documents the town's resistance to the new settlement. Over the course of several years, the townspeople clash with the Israeli Defense Force, and tensions mount as the wall remains and the building continues.
Shorts Program 2 - 1:05 PM
Kief Davidson and Cori Shepherd Stern
Their hearts ravaged by common strep throat turned deadly, eight Rwandan children leave their families behind to embark on a life-or-death journey to Sudan for high-risk surgery. Resilient cardiologist Dr. Emmanuel Rusingiza fights to save their lives, alongside larger-than-life Dr. Gino Strada who also must fight to save his hospital.
Sean Fine and Andrea Nix Fine
Fifteen-year-old Inocente, a homeless, undocumented immigrant, clings to her determination to become an artist in the face of a bleak future.
Sari Gilman and Jedd Wider
Over the course of a decade, five senior citizens living in the Kings Point retirement community face loss, illness and an increasing sense of isolation in their lives.
THE INVISIBLE WAR - 3:35 PM
Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering
According to Department of Defense estimates, over 19,300 members of the U.S. military were sexually assaulted in 2010 alone. Yet, although the rate of sexual assaults against women in the service is twice that of the civilian population, only ten percent of assault cases end in prosecution, with female soldiers often finding themselves ostracized or pressured into remaining silent.
HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE - 5:50 PM
David France and Howard Gertler
By the mid-1980s, as the official response to the growing AIDS epidemic remained dispiritingly low-key and at times hostile, the activist group ACT UP began focusing media attention on the disease and demanding action from the government and the medical community. While some members of the group staged protests, others immersed themselves in the research being done on the virus and helped achieve a dramatic transformation in its treatment.
SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN - 8:15 PM
Malik Bendjelloul and Simon Chinn
In the early 1970s, A&M released two albums by a singer-songwriter known only as Rodriguez, who dropped out of sight and was rumored to have died after the records failed to sell. When Rodriguez unexpectedly attracted a cult following in South Africa, however, two of his ardent fans decided to track down the truth behind his disappearance from the music scene.
