Course Description:

OLLI’s popular documentary film series presents five new and inspiring films that endeavor to expand our understanding of history, culture, politics, arts and literature. Each class begins with an introduction to the film’s content and its director(s), followed by screening and rich discussion. Once again, we invite you to dive into the world of documentary filmmaking, and engage in a deeper understanding of our world, as rendered through the wide lens of cinema.

Films tentatively scheduled: "Dolores" (2017), "California Typewriter" (2016), 'The Cats of Mirikitani" (2006), "Heather Booth", "Changing the World" (2016), and "Soufra" (2017).
