Docs in Progress Community Stories Festival

November 20, 2018  •  Leave a Comment


I was grateful when Docs in Progress asked me to photograph some of the 2018 Community Stories Festival events. These are opportunities for DC area filmmakers to share their documentaries. The event also included work by students from the Docs in Progress Activist Video Youth Summer Camp (seen above). 

 For me, the most interesting story was "When Mickey Came to Town". In the 1990s, Disney bought land just a few miles down the Manassas National Battlefield Park, the site of two Civil War battles. They wanted to create a history-themed park there. Public outcry eventually made them scrap the plan. I grew up in Northern Virginia and had no idea this had even happened. Sam Sheline was producer and director. 

More from the events.
