LAST DAY OF FREEDOM: Documentary Film Screening
Directed by Dee Hibbert-Jones and Nomi Talisman
USA / 2015 / 31:50mins / DC Premiere

When Bill realizes his brother Manny has committed a crime, he agonizes over whether he should call the police? This richly animated personal narrative tells the story of Bills decision to stand by his brother in the face of war, crime, and capital punishment. The film is a portrait of a man at the nexus of the most pressing social issues of our day -- veterans care, mental health access, and criminal justice.

2016 Oscar Nominee

If you would like to talk further with director Dee Hibbert-Jones, this event is followed by a seminar called ANIMATION MEETS DOCUMENTARY: INNOVATIONS AND NEW DIRECTIONS
A chance to meet with industry professionals to think about the impact of animation on documentary filmmaking and its reception by the audience. Does this change expectations of what constitutes documentary film?  A seminar on what is working, how you do it and what resources are available. The seminar starts at 3:30pm and costs $16
