ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/22/14 -- Australia's National documentary event, DocWeek, officially announced the 2014 program this morning at The State Library of South Australia. DocWeek will feature a greater screening program, exhibitions, parties, conversations and the renowned Australian International Documentary Conference will coincide from 4-7th March.
A Documentary highlight will be a retrospective of the works with one of the most important documentary filmmakers of the moment, Alex Gibney known for his gripping, deeply insightful documentaries. The strand called 'Needle In The Haystack' will feature 9 of his Films. It was also announced that American Award-winning filmmaker Marshall Curry will attend DocWeek with his partner and producer Elizabeth Martin and the strand called 'The View From Here' will feature 3 of his films followed by Q & A s with the filmmakers present.
Last year's new talent showcase and competition program F4 has been replaced by the 'Asia Pacific New Documentary Program' and filmmakers from the Asia and Pacific regions will present films from China, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Malaysia, India, and 4 from Australia. In this category Blush of Fruit by filmmaker Jakub Anov will screen. Blush of Fruit recently screened during the Adelaide Film Festival where is received the documentary award. We will give it another outing.
'The Last Impresario', by filmmaker Gracie Otto will officially open DocWeek with its Australian premiere of her full length directorial debut. The Last Impresario is a portrait of larger than life theatre and film producer, Michael White. He was the driving force behind the success of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, Monty Python, Barry Humphries and many others. The Last Impresario will share the opening slot with the long anticipated film by Alex Gibney, The Armstrong Lie, about cyclist Lance Armstrong.
'From the Bottom of the Lake', by debutante Clare Young will close DocWeek and is a close up and intimate portrait of Jane Campion's creative process. Clare follows Jane and her co-writer Gerard Lee as they create the critically acclaimed series 'Top of the Lake' from note book to Golden Globe.
'Kick Out The Jams' is a series of 5 Documentary films exploring Detroit, Michigan. Each film shows a different perspective on the plight of the motor city. The series is named after the famous song by Detroit band the MC5. The five films combined will give a comprehensive insight into the sociology and creative environment of a city that has lost its primary economy.
A free screening program called 'Hometown Adelaide' will be screened at the State Library of South Australia with the focus on Adelaide. Archival films supplied by the National Film and Sound Archive will be shown and new short films by Adelaide based filmmakers about Adelaide artists will screen. At the centre of this program is the daily episode of Gillian Armstrong's The Story of Josie, Diana and Kerry - three local girls from Adelaide who Armstrong has been following since the 70's. 'Home Town: Adelaide' starts every night at 6:30 and is free. The last night is dedicated to Visionary Adelaide, a panel discussion led by ABC 891 Mornings presenter Ian Henschke. In the discussion urban development experts take full advantage of the lessons Gillian Armstrong's long term study of Adelaide and its suburbs has given us, and make predictions for the city's future.
DocWeek Interactive is a new program to be held at the City Library offering a user-driven space where you can interact with the world's best interactive documentaries.
DocWeek 2014 officially kicks off on Wednesday the 19th of February with Night Lab, a collaboration between the South Australia Museum and DocWeek. Night Lab follows the drives and experiences of those exploring the harshest and most remote places on earth.
