In just over two weeks, on Thursday, November 8, the ninth edition of DOC NYC, America’s largest documentary festival, begins. As the event’s Director of Programming, I’ve led the film selection, and, as in years past, will briefly spotlight our programming here, section by section.
Special Events, our tentpole screenings:
THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM

For over eight years, John and Molly Chester struggle to work with nature to establish a biodynamic farm, like a modern-day LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE.
BRESLIN AND HAMILL: DEADLINE ARTISTS

Legendary newspaper columnists Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill are profiled in this essential look at journalism in New York City.
DOCUMENTARY NOW! PRESENTS ORIGINAL CAST ALBUM: CO-OP

IFC’s comedy series DOCUMENTARY NOW!, which pays homage to nonfiction classics, presents an episode inspired by D.A. Pennebaker’s ORIGINAL CAST ALBUM: COMPANY.
