DOXA runs May 22 – 31, 2009 at various venues, check online for a full list of films and show times.
A number of films caught my eye, but the must-see is The Garden, the story of inner city LA citizens who came together, became farmers, and in so doing, built a community. (Friday, May 29th, 9:00 p.m.)
Which of course is then threatened by greed and political corruption. Hmmm, why does this theme keep coming up? If this were a regular Hollywood film, we’d all be saying, “Come on, get an original plot, wouldya?!” Sadly, it’s a documentary. Here we go again…
Note: The DOXA online purchase option tacks on $2.50/tix which I think is a rip-off. Here’s the list of where you can buy them in person:
Bibliophile Bookshop, 2010 Commercial Drive – CASH ONLY
Videomatica, 1855 West 4th Avenue – CASH ONLY
Biz Books, 302 West Cordova Street
