Description

Op-Docs is the New York Times’ award-winning series of short-form documentaries by independent filmmakers. Always a Doc Stories highlight, this year’s selection includes work that showcases art from an inmate of Guantánamo Bay, profiles an unforgettable Black female basketball player, and animates a series of phone calls a young Asian American man makes to friends who signed his high school yearbook. The program features the following 2021 Op-Docs: 57 Days (Mario Lumbreras, Laura Brasero), H.A.G.S. (Sean Wang), JOBS FOR ALL! (Maximilien Van Aertryck, Axel Danielson), Mission: Hebron (Rona Segal), The Queen of Basketball (Ben Proudfoot), and A Ship from Guantánamo (Dara Kell, Veena Rao).
