Doc Stories

November 1–4, 2019

In this year's Doc Stories program, the individual—from the famous to the not-so-famous to the infamous—dominates. Whether it's the amazing performers who have graced the stage of Harlem's Apollo Theater, the brave first responders to the Camp Fire, or the shocking hubris of Imelda Marcos, the subjects of these extraordinary films reflect on politics, the arts, a life in medicine, womanhood, and much more. Additionally, SFFILM is thrilled to pay tribute to two legendary documentarians, Julia Reichert and Martin Scorsese, who will join us for in-depth onstage conversations exploring their storied careers in the non-fiction form.
