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.


Her Red Father
by Tova Beck-Friedman
Bernard Ades was a lawyer, radicalized by the Great Depression of the 1930s. This film follows his story from confronting systemic racism in Maryland to fighting fascism with the International Brigades in Spain. The story is told through his daughter Janet who simultaneously admires his wisdom, generosity and world outlook while also questioning his Communist ideology.
