NSDN brings sixteen films to DokuFest

July 9, 2019

In cooperation with the American Documentary Film Festival (AmDocs) and DocsMX, DokuFest announces its North-South Doc Network slate.

The North-South Doc Network or NSDN is a unique cooperation between three festivals in America, Kosovo, and Mexico, allowing filmmakers to share their films and experiences, as well as enabling wider audiences to see documentaries about their culture and identity.

The NSDN slate at DokuFest weaves together a list of 16 films from each of the respective festival’s geographical regions, allowing for a greater comparison of socio-cultural and individual phenomena.

The panoply of NSDN films that will screen at DokuFest allows viewers to intimately experience real-time stories of characters such as Liliana, a patient with borderline personality who continues the treatment at her home, the story of Ashley, a middle-aged woman who is tired of her workaholic husband and wants to move to the Amazon Jungle and, the heartfelt acts of characters that aim at erasing the hate in their communities.

The slate also presents social documentaries following influential bands and musicians and other historical momentums capturing unprecedented and startling insight to the inner workings of the KKK in the 1970s.
