NOTE - NEW TIME AND MEETING PLACE
In a world of sound-bites, documentaries provide an opportunity to think, understand, share, and expand our experience. Documentaries provide the perfect topic for meaningful conversations.
The Documentary Film Group will be gathering one afternoon each month to discuss a documentary film. The documentaries are all available on Netflix unless noted otherwise and participants should watch the documentary selection before coming to the meeting where we will discuss the film.
IMDb Review: “The film doesn't just touch on the basic history and fundamentals of the Internet, but provides such a deep understanding of its past, present, and future. It dives into the wonders of what is possible while carefully reminding us about its dangers, all while Werner gives a very comedic voice-over.
It's a shame that Roger Ebert isn't around to view this film. I know he would've been proud of his friend for creating such an accomplishment in documentary filmmaking.”
