Great Films, True Stories: The 2006 Image Film Festival

This year’s Image Film Festival promises to be a challenging, exciting series of events. It’s entitled “Telling the Truth: The Art of Documentary Films,” featuring five documentary films that satisfy our desire for revelation, entertainment, emotional connection, and above all, truth.

Join us for the kick-off event, Friday, January 20, 2006, from 7:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

Five films will be screened over the course of the weekend–Hoop Dreams, Born Into Brothels, Murderball, Supersize Me, and Buena Vista Social Club–followed by discussions led by panels of faculty and students.

Free popcorn and other goodies will be served.

    Re: A Scanner Darkly.

    I am sill looking forward to seeing this one for myself. I’m not the biggest fan of the cast, but am willing to give Linklater the benefit of the doubt on this one. I always assumed it would be a difficult film – as I have heard the book is not an easy one either.

    Great line-up. Wouldn’t mind if they’d added Mad Hot Ballroom, but maybe they thought one story of children in difficult circs was enough.

    Man, I wish I could be there! This looks like the best one yet.
