The 25th Hot Docs festival gets underway today, and NOW is all over it! Here, finally, is our directory of reviews, to which I will be adding titles pretty much for the rest of my life.
You can should check out Susan’s cover story on Maya Gallus and her new film The Heat, one of several documentaries about chefs and kitchens screening at the this year’s festival.
And read Michelle’s conversation with Mandi Gray, the subject of Slut or Nut: Diary of a Rape Trial, which touches on all sorts of unpleasant and entirely relevant things.
Not all docs are upbeat, after all. The world needs uncomfortable truths.
