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 the Utopia Film Festival.

by Corey Robinson
In the 1930′s teenager, Everett Ruess set out from Los Angeles into the desert southwest’s wilderness intending to explore native American ruins, desert canyons and high mesas. Making art and writing all the way he spent many of his teen years in the unforgiving desert. At just 20 years old, he vanished into the red rock canyon country, never to be found. A wilderness advocate before his time, the mystery around Ruess still builds.
