Goregirl’s Going to DOXA!
That’s right! I will be attending DOXA Documentary Film Festival (May 3 – 12)! This is Doxa’s 12th year and boasts 74 screenings; five of which I will be attending. Here are the five documentaries I chose…
I AM DIVINE
Director: Jeffrey Schwarz
Taken from IMDB: How Divine, aka Harris Glenn Milstead, became John Waters’ cinematic muse and an international drag icon.
INTERIOR LEATHER BAR
Directed By: James Franco & Travis Mathews
Taken from IMDB: Filmmakers James Franco and Travis Mathews re-imagine the lost 40 minutes from Cruising as a starting point to a broader exploration of sexual and creative freedom.
GOOD OL’ FREDA
Directed By: Ryan White
Taken from IMDB: Good Ol’ Freda tells the story of Freda Kelly, a shy Liverpudlian teenager asked to work for a young local band hoping to make it big: the Beatles. As the Beatles’ fame multiplies, Freda bears witness to music and cultural history but never exploits her insider access. Their loyal secretary from beginning to end, Freda finally tells her tales for the first time in 50 years. Written by Anonymous. There was no trailer for this one; you can check out the official website here.
Directed By: Tom Donahue
Taken from IMDB: The surprising, never-before-told tale of the indispensable yet unsung Casting Director – Iconoclasts whose keen eye, exquisite taste and gut instincts redefined Hollywood.
THE PERVERT’S GUIDE TO IDEOLOGY
Directed By: Sophie Fiennes
Taken from IMDB: The sequel to The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema sees the reunion of brilliant philosopher Slavoj Zizek with filmmaker Sophie Fiennes, now using their inventive interpretation of moving pictures to examine ideology – the collective fantasies that shape our beliefs and practices. Written by P Guide.
