Film: Doxita 4: Inside/Outside
doxita is a traveling festival of documentary films that are under 40 minutes in length. The program represents a wide variety of documentary domestic and foreign, super-short and longer format, serious and funny. It is designed to profile the great content and artistic vision that non-fiction short films provide, but that people don't often get a chance to see.
These are the films in Doxita Season 4: Inside/Outside
Guañape Sur (Janos Richter, Italy, 22 min) In the visually stunning, Peruvian workers travel by boat to an
island of birds, where they'll harvest the rich soil for fertilizer.
Wagah (Supriyo Sen, Germany, 13 min) Each day, at a checkpoint on the border of India and Pakistan,
thousands of spectators proclaim their national identity as they watch their soldiers perform the flag ceremony.
My Name is Sydney (Melanie Levy, USA, 17 min) 16-year old Sydney is articulate in ways she can never
express - a complex woman inside a severely autistic body. Levy captures the sensitive care-giving of her
mother and Sydney's artistic musings.
Arsy Versy (Miro Remo, Slovakia, 24 min) Lubo watches over the bats, while his mother watches over him.
A quirky portrait of a man who follows his own spirit, even if it's a bit "upside down."
Followed by Q&A with Karen Cirillo, founder and curator of Doxita.
