Our favorite documentary series returns with its fall installment
Documentary fans, it's time to get schooled as the fall term of our favorite documentary series, Stranger Than Fiction is now in session. This semester's syllabus includes Andrew Jarecki's 2003 award-winning film Capturing the Friedmans; Randy Moore's fictional horror film shoot at Disney World, Escape From Tomorrow; and Calvet, which recounts the incredible life story of French painter Jean Marc Calvet. Classes start off with a slam dunk, as director Evan Jackson Leong presents his documentary about Jeremy Lin; a project he began long before Linsanity struck. Participation is encouraged, so come ready to drill the filmmakers and/or special guests with questions following the screenings.
