No Festival Required Brings Short Documentary Film Festival DOXITA to Phoenix Center for the Arts
The typical American suffers from a short attention span. The DOXITA documentary film festival caters to that malady. No film in the annual roundup is more than 22 minutes long, so about the time that interest wanes, the short wraps.
And, per organizers at No Festival Required, each movie is selected to spotlight something seemingly obscure, but visually viable.
The lineup includes Wagah, an observation of spectators at the India-Pakistan border during a flag ceremony, and Guañape Sur, which follows Peruvian workers journeying to an island to harvest bird guano.
My Name is Sydney chronicles the communication struggles of an autistic girl, while Arsy Versy is a quirky portrait of a man obsessed with bat watching. Largely untouched topics? Yes. Boring? Uh, no.
DOXITA will kick off tonight at 7 p.m. at Phoenix Center for the Arts. Tickets are $6 at the door.
