Man From Reno
From celebrated film maker David Boyle. A Japanese crime novelist (Ayko Fujitani), and small town sheriff (Pepe Serna) are lured into the same strange murder mystery in this idiosyncratic and engrossing neo-noir. Unfolding on the backstreets and outskirts of San Francisco, Man From Reno is sinister and seductive by turns.
PBS, Independent Lens.
Peace Officer is a documentary about the increasingly militarized state of American police as told through the story of “Dub” Lawrence, a former sheriff who established and trained his rural state’s first SWAT team only to see that same unit kill his son-in-law in a controversial standoff 30 years later. Driven by an obsessed sense of mission, Dub uses his own investigative skills to uncover the truth in this and other recent officer-involved shootings in his community while tackling the problem at large.
Rise of The Sufferfests
From investigative journalist Scott Keneally (New York Times, Outside, Rolling Stone). Rise of the Sufferfests is the first feature documentary about the global obstacle race phenomenon. It explores the history of the sport, psychology behind it, personalities that drive it and, most importantly, asks what it says about the world we're living in.
