If you’re in New York City, check out MoMA’s annual showcase of international documentary films from February 13-March 3. This year’s Documentary Fortnight features more than 30 films, with a special focus on docs about the environment, covering a whole range of topics from graffiti in New York to the problems of chemical sensitivities. Another film that looks especially interesting tracks the electoral campaign of Malalai Joya, a woman who successfully ran in the 2005 Afghanistan parliamentary elections. And to spice things up, there’s a program dedicated to documentaries made using cell-phones — these videos range from one to fourteen minutes long.
Many of the filmmakers will be present to answer questions after their films screen. See the Museum of Modern Art’s program guide for more times and more information about each film.
