A collection of innovative nonfiction filmmaking

Nonfiction filmmaking once again proves itself every bit as wildly inventive as its narrative brethren in Spectrum selections that unleash barrages of recontextualized film clips, witness nostalgia trips metamorphosize into heist films, and send unlikely friends on an odyssey through a typhoon-ravaged landscape. Aesthetic daring assumes many forms here, with more reflective films leaving us privy to intimate conversations or immersing us in sensory experiences defined by sound and its absence.
