Event Description

Presented as part of We Are Takoma

Since 2004, Docs In Progress has facilitated feedback sessions on the rough cuts of more than 150 documentaries...with your help. Watch a not-quite-finished documentary and participate in a facilitated workshop-style 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 open to filmmakers and film lovers!

WHAT'S SCREENING?

For Choco
by Ray Whitehouse
A story of love and loss against the backdrop of the 2016 presidential election. Frankie Gonzales is following in the footsteps of her godmother Choco who is a key campaign organizer for Hilary Clinton in Texas. After Choco dies unexpectedly, Frankie redoubles her volunteer efforts for the campaign while simultaneously encountering challenges in her transition from male to female.


​Spirit Painter
by Brian Pascale
A painter originally from Cote d'Ivoire has made Baltimore his new home. While his art has attracted the attention of patrons, he now must face the challenges of the economic downturn.
