Unfortunately the weather made True/False Fest end on a chilly note. With temperatures at a high of 12 degrees, freezing rain, and some snow fall you didn’t see as big of crowds as you did on Friday, but the show went on and people still came out to films. The last film I enjoyed on this weekend filled with films was Jodorowsky’s Dune, and it was an excellent end note!
Directed by Cynthia Hill, Private Violence is one of the most heart-wrenching documentaries that I have seen at True/False Fest this year.
Producer and director Penn and Teller make this easy-to-approach documentary a comedic journey, and explain Tim’s process in a way that everyone can understand.
True/False Film Fest, which started Thursday night and runs through the weekend, is definitely the best place to see new documentaries that you may not be able to see anywhere else. The crowds this year are even bigger then they were last year, which may or may not be a good thing for the people that live in Columbia, MO.
Hey-o! A late post for the podcast this week. Sorry about that. This week, Trey talks The Host, while Trevan and Eric talk G.I. Joe: Retaliation and The Gatekeepers. Lastly, Eric takes on On The Road on his own.
The very compelling documentary ‘The Gatekeepers’ opens in Kansas City this weekend. Here’s a review of ‘The Gatekeepers’ from the recent True/False Festival!
True/False 2013: Leviathan is the most metal documentary you will ever watch about commercial fishing. Winter Go Away! is an impressive array of journalism and good filmmaking.
Thursday is True/False Film Fest’s official opening, but Friday is when Columbia, Missouri’s surprising gem of a festival really gets the party kicked into high gear.
