Announcing a new Meetup for Docs In Progress (Documentary Films and Filmmaking)!
What: Documentary Appreciation Salon: Place as Character
When: Tuesday, July 13,[masked]:30 PM
Politics and Prose
5015 Connecticut Ave NW
Washington, DC 20008
This salon series, moderated by Docs In Progress co-founder Erica Ginsberg, brings together filmmakers and documentary film aficionados to discuss and debate great issues in documentary cinema. Each salon will focus around a particular sub-genre of documentary and use clips from documentary films and questions from the moderator to spur reflection and discussion.
This month's topic will focus on how place is approached in documentaries. While sometimes just a setting or backdrop, the location or locations of a documentary can often be almost a character in and of itself. How do different documentarians treat the role of place in their films.
Although this is a free event, because of limited seating (of no more than 15 participants), advance registration is highly recommended. You can RSVP here on Meet-Up or on the Docs In Progress website.
This month's Documentary Appreciation Salon takes place at the Modern Times Coffeehouse at Politics & Prose Bookstore. The coffeehouse is on the lower level of the bookstore and we encourage you to support our sponsor by enjoying their selection of coffees, teas, soups, sandwiches, and sweets as we watch and discuss the film clips.
