doxita is a traveling festival of documentary films that are under 40 minutes in length. The program represents a wide variety of documentary – domestic and foreign, super-short and longer format, serious and funny. It is designed to profile the great content and artistic vision that non-fiction short films provide, but that people don’t often get a chance to see.
We are currently in the programming stage of Doxita Season 5. Check out Season 4 and previous seasons to learn more.
Doxita Season 4: Inside/Outside
These are the films in the 4th annual doxita:Guañape Sur* (Janos Richter, Italy, 22 min) In the visually stunning, Peruvian workers travel by boat to an island of birds, where they’ll harvest the rich soil for fertilizer.Wagah (Supriyo Sen, Germany, 13 min) Each day, at a checkpoint on the border of India and Pakistan, thousands of spectators proclaim their national identity as they watch their soldiers perform the flag ceremony.My Name is Sydney (Melanie Levy, USA, 17 min) 16-year old Sydney is articulate in ways she can never express - a complex woman inside a severely autistic body. Levy captures the sensitive care-giving of her mother and Sydney’s artistic musings.Arsy Versy (Miro Remo, Slovakia, 24 min) Lubo watches over the bats, while his mother watches over him. A quirky portrait of a man who follows his own spirit, even if it’s a bit “upside down.”*Guanape Sur is distributed by Icarus Films.
