Details

This crash course in the contemporary documentary features short films from both established and up-and-coming filmmakers working in a dizzying range of forms and tones. Among the highlights are Nathan Truesdell’s The Water Slide (2018), the latest film from the director of Balloonfest (an Unorthodocs. 2017 audience favorite) made up of local news reports about a Kansas waterslide that gets tragically fast-tracked by Libertarian politicians and their love for deregulation. The Labyrinth (2018), the hallucinatory new film from acclaimed filmmaker Laura Huertas Millán, follows the path of an indigenous man working for Colombian drug lords in the 1980s as he runs from the forest to the ruin of a narco’s hideout built in the style of the Carrington mansion in the soap opera Dynasty.
