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 each film, facilitators from Docs In Progress 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 portrait piece of Kumi Korf explores the lifeforce which inspires art. The Japanese-American artist creates architectural designs, prints, paintings, and artist books which are held by the Library of Congress, the New York Public Library, and the Tate Library, among others. We travel with Korf from her home in Ithaca, New York to her homeland of Japan as we explore an artist caught between cultures.

Giba Gonçalves has built up the Batala Percussion Band from one of the poorest neighborhoods of Salvador, Brazil to a worldwide organization with more than 1,000 drummers in 10 different countries. Regardless of age, gender, nationality, or language, the band plays as one -- united by the universal language of music.

Drivers, please note that the public lot immediately across the street has coin-based meters and they are strongly enforced through 10 pm.
