San Francisco's DocFest 2005
4th Annual Documentary Film Festival

This Thursday kicks off 10 days of great documentaries with the 2005 DocFest, representing some of the best new non-fictional films by some of today's most exciting film-makers. Eschewing the kind of drastically serious types of docs that get Oscar nominations, the SF DocFest documentaries are those cinematic gems that uncover the secret subcultural worlds of surreal Americana.

Featuring Popaganda a film about culturejammer and billboard terrorist Ron English, Trollywood a look at the homeless on the glitterified streets of the city of Los Angeles, The Ramones & I the award winning pinhead coming of age story featuring lots of classic Ramones footage, Trudell a film archive devoted to political activist John Trudell who took over Alcatraz Island in 1969, Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music? a look inside the ever-growing phenomenon of Christian hard rock music, Ghetto Fabulous about East Oakland's extensive group of classic Ford Falcon enthusiasts and the car culture of the ghetto, Scared Sacred an all-too-real trip from the minefields of Cambodia to war-torn Afghanistan to post- 9/11 New York and post-Little Boy Hiroshima, Derailroaded an archival documentation of the paranoid-schizophrenic world of musician Wild Man Fischer, and many more.

Scheduled to go head-to-head with the year's most hyped science fiction flick the SF DocFest offers many tales of a time not so long ago in galaxy we call our our own... definitely not to be missed!

SF DocFest @ The Roxie Cinema
May 12 to May 22
