This work-in-progress screening provides an opportunity for local and visiting documentary filmmakers to screen their unfinished films to an audience and get valuable feedback. After screening the film, a facilitator from Docs In Progress will moderate a feedback session with the audience. This honest and constructive feedback is aimed at helping the filmmakers get to the next stage of completing and distributing the film. This program is presented jointly with We Are Takoma.
The Trouble with TQ
by Calvin Thomas
The Reverend Thomas “TQ” Quinlan spent more than 40 years as a priest in Virginia. During that time, he saw many changes in society and with the Catholic Church itself. Inspired by the reforms of Vatican II in the late 1950s, “TQ” set out to change the way Catholics celebrate mass, incorporating symbolism, pop culture, and historical references; and even challenging clerical patriarchy. This is the story of an iconoclastic priest’s efforts to make church relevant to the Catholics, and Catholics relevant to the world.
