SDFF + Nor Cal Public Media Team Up for Declare Your Independents
New Episode, “Inside And Out” Airs May 21 at 8 p.m. on KRCB
SDFF’s nascent collaboration with Nor Cal Public Media, Declare Your Independents, continues this week with a new episode, “Inside and Out,” which features three documentaries focused on identity and representation. The films include: This Is Not The End (Hilary Campbell, 2012), I Am Sarah Maple (Tyler Gurd and Ariel Fisher, 2012), and On Beauty (Joanna Rudnick, 2014).
The 4-part series is hosted by actor/activist Peter Coyote and celebrates independent documentary. Declare Your Independents is organized by the guiding principle that documentary is a powerful tool that brings deep truths to light. Documentary not only opens up new worlds to its audiences, it allows us to see these new worlds from diverse perspectives, and in doing so, to recognize our common humanity. Obligated to the truth of the story they’re telling, documentary filmmakers afford us rare opportunities to engage in what’s real.
Declare Your Independents episode 2, “Inside and Out,” airs Friday, May 21 at 8 pm on KRCB TV in the North Bay, and Saturday, May 22 at 8pm on KPJK TV in the South Bay. You can also find the series streaming on KRCB’s live stream live stream while it is airing.
