We’re thrilled to be celebrating DOC Members with films at DOXA. DOC BC Member: Mathew lestyn Parry – Hives for Humanity: The Power of Bees Julia Common loves her bees and she is keen to share that love. In the summer of 2012 she placed one hive at a community garden in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side. The community response was overwhelmingly positive, and one hive led to many, many more.
Former DOC BC Board Member: Kevin Eastwood
– Emergency Room: Life and Death at VGH
Life and death on a daily basis at Vancouver General Hospital’s emergency room is the raw material of a new documentary series from Knowledge Network. DOC Member: Helene Klodawsky – Come Worry With Us!
Artistic communities are often the place where political praxis is put to the test, and Come Worry With Us! is a poignant example of this fact. Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra have been making protest folk, free jazz, and neo-classical music for over 15 years. Having intentionally opted out of the corporate music industry for the DIY alternative, their sound and political convictions are imbued with a punk rock ethos and aesthetic. DOC Members: Maya Gallus, Justine Pimlott – Derby Crazy Love
A rollicking, rolling, punch-in-the-tits type of a film, Derby Crazy Love has just about everything you would expect from a film about roller derby. There are tough babes, hard-fought battles, horrifying wipeouts, more than a little epic drama, and even a little bit of sweet sentiment in amongst the bone-crushing checks. And in memory of DOC Member Peter Wintonick
whose film Cinema Vérité: Defining the Moment
will also be shown at DOXA. (Archival research by DOC Member Elizabeth Klinck
