New York premiere at DOC NYC
Categorized in: Recent News
“On Beauty” is ready to add another great festival to this fall’s lineup and announce a our New York City premiere at DOC NYC. The film is one of four short documentaries in the program Point + Shoot, which is scheduled to show at 12 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 15 at the IFC Center.
The shorts program features documentaries that showcase stories of a variety of photographers from a group of visually impaired photographers in New York (“BlindSight”) to the reclusive and reluctant photographer who documented Andy Warhol’s The Factory (“Becoming Billy Name”) to the award-winning war photographer Sebastiano (“Embedded”).
DOC NYC is only in it’s fifth year, but is the country’s largest documentary film festival with more than 130 films and events scheduled. We are thrilled to be part of such a great festival in Rick’s home city.
Director Joanna Rudnick is expected to attend along with the film’s stars Rick Guidotti and Sarah Kanney. Many other Kartemquin filmmakers will attend the festival, including Steve James who will be at two screenings of his newest film, “Life Itself,” and will also commemorate the 20th anniversary of the release of “Hoop Dreams.” Aaron Wickenden and Dan Rybicky will celebrate the world premiere of their film “Almost There” at the festival. And Kartemquin executive director, Justine Nagan, and artistic director, Gordon Quinn, will also be there to celebrate the films, the festival and documentaries in general.
