SDFF + Nor Cal Public Media Team Up for Declare Your Independents
Final Episode, “Loss And Restoration” Airs June 18 at 8 p.m. on KRCB
Peter Coyote hosts Declare Your Independents, episode 4 “Loss and Restoration”
SDFF’s nascent collaboration with Nor Cal Public Media, Declare Your Independents, will wrap up on June 18th with “Loss and Restoration.” This final set of films take us from Ireland, to Japan, and back to the United States to find meaning in damage and decay, restoration and renewal, and include Last Days At Paradise High (Derek Knowles and Emily Thomas, 2020), Minka (Davina Pardo, 2011), and Irish Folk Furniture (Tony Donoghue, 2012).
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 4, “Loss and Restoration” will air on June 18 at 8 pm on KRCB TV in the North Bay, and Saturday, June 19 29 at 8pm on KPJK TV in the South Bay. You can also find the series streaming on KRCB’s live stream while it is airing.
