Strange but true! We’ve rounded up a selection of our favorite independent documentary filmmakers for a slice-of-life celebration! The 16mm film format allowed for a new generation of highly mobile moviemaking on a budget, and the personal statements that emerged from early film schools brought america in touch with its unseen underbelly. Let’s give it a scratch. This is real life and it will real weird as we learn about plants, dance, drugs, punks, poops, tour guides, nudists, delicatessens & more.

Our all-16mm program of oddball documentaries includes:

*Jerry’s Deli – (1976) dir. Tom Palazzolo – A cold cut case of American salesmanship.
Full Circle – (1974) dir. Doris Chase – The pioneering multimedia artist describes her design process.
