Ross McElwee sets out to make a documentary about the lingering effects of General Sherman’s march of destruction through the South during the Civil War, but is continually sidetracked by women who come and go in his life, his recurring dreams of nuclear holocaust, and Burt Reynolds.
We recently added When Strangers Click to the DBRL collection. The film was broadcast on HBO in February and is the latest film directed by Robert Kenner, who also directed War Letters and Food, Inc. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:
Finding love has never been easy. But it’s also never been easier. Online dating sites thrive on the promise that dates and mates are just a click away – but are they? A documentary about the way we woo in a wired world.
This month’s film is Paper Heart (2009, 88 min.). The film follows filmmaker Charlyne Yi as she embarks on a journey across America to make a documentary about the one subject she doesn’t fully understand…love. Along the way she meets the boy of her dreams and wonders if she will lose the one thing she never believed in. This film, also starring Michael Cera, Seth Rogan and Demetri Martin, won the Waldo Scott Screenwriting Award at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. Watch the trailer for the film below:
