We’ve compiled a list of previous documentaries available at DBRL from the directors who are presenting films at the upcoming Citizen Jane Film Fest October 19-21. Check out their old films before you attend the fest for their new films!
Did you miss last month’s showing of “Nostalgia for the Light” at DBRL? The television station KMOS is organizing a free screening of the film at RagTag on Monday Sept 17th at 5:30pm. This documentary is shown in collaboration with POV, PBS’ award-winning nonfiction film series. The film will also be shown on KMOS Channel 6 on October 25th, 2012. We had a great discussion after our showing, so this is a movie that would be great to catch with a live audience.
The True False Film Fest has announced the third annual Boone Dawdle for Saturday, August 18, 2012. The Dawdle involves a bike ride from Columbia to Rocheport with some music, food, and a documentary thrown in along the way.
The film for this year’s event is The Source, a feature documentary film set in Hollywood, examining a radical experiment in ’70s utopian living. Jodi Wille & Isis Aquarian will be in attendance for an afterwards Q&A.
Join us for a special showing of Kilowatt Ours (56 min.), an award-winning documentary providing simple, practical and affordable solutions to America’s energy crisis starting at the light switch. The film is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Columbia-Boone County, the Climate Change Coalition, Osage Group of the Sierra Club, Missourians for Safe Energy and the Columbia Public Library. Here’s some more information from our program guide:
This award-winning film about the impact of energy use on the environment and the steps we can take to make a difference screens just a few days before Earth Hour, set for Saturday, March 31, 8:30-9:30 p.m. The film will be followed by a discussion. Refreshments at 6:30 p.m.
At the Academy Awards show last night, Undefeated took the 2012 Oscar for best documentary feature. The film (not to be confused with Sarah Palin’s similarly titled documentary) focuses on an underdog football team that looks to reverse their fortunes with Bill Courtney, a lumber salesman who becomes a volunteer football coach.
“Undefeated” is not currently available for the library to purchase because it is not on DVD yet. However, the film is playing at the local True / False Film Fest next weekend, so catch it there if you can. The film also has a local angle, as it was co-directed by MU grad Dan Lindsay. Radio station KBIA put up part one of an interview with Lindsay last week, with part two to follow this Friday.
We have a couple of the 2012 Oscar nominees available in our catalog:
Keep in mind that we’re showing If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front on April 25 as part of Center Aisle Cinema. Ragtag Cinema is also going to be showing the documentary Pina starting March 9. You can also catch Ragtag’s Oscar-Nominated Animated Shorts and Oscar-Nominated Live-Action Shorts this week as well.
