CHICAGO – Documentaries are often the most compelling filmmaking, because truth is always stranger. The Chicago Media Project presents its third annual DOC 10, a weekend festival of 11 prominent documentaries that often end up either making a national statement or getting nominated for awards. It all takes place at the Davis Theatre in the Lincoln Square neighborhood from April 5th-8th, 2018. For more information, including schedule and tickets, click here.
The Opening Night film is the highly anticipated “Won’t You Be My Neighbor,” the profile of Fred “Mr.” Rogers, who hosted “Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood” on PBS, which nurtured two generations of children over five decades. The nine other documentaries, playing at various times over the weekend are... “RBG,” “The King” (Closing Night), “Bisbee ’17,” “Love Means Zero,” “Crime + Punishment,” “306 Hollywood,” “On Her Shoulders,” “Devil’s Freedom,” “The Other Side of Everything” and “Minding the Gap.” DOC 10 also features discussions and seminars.
