For more background on
A WILL FOR THE WOODS
here is the N&O's story on Clark Wang's funeral two years ago:
Not sure if they are showing worldwide watched doc called "Searching for Steele". If the Bush Administration is not charged with war crimes, we are doomed as a country. This documentary shows black & white, on paper, letters of PROOF they all knew & authorized torture & forced our soldiers to watch the torture they ordered-& see what happens if they speak out, like Bradley Manning-a true hero to the truth of the terror we are paying for. We have to get these radicals out of our government or the rest of the world, I fear, will turn on us. We have become like a big dumb jock that bullies those who have less, instead of doing good, we have Republican US Senators, etc.radicals, going to Uganda, Africa-teaching them the "evils of homosexuality", who now want to kill gay people because of right-wing fundamentalist religion-that does harm- not the good it should. Ayn Rand is NOT Jesus Christ. Wake up Republican voters, please.
Saw "Blood Brother" at Sundance and was moved. Then learned the next day that subject and filmmakers alike are from the Greater Pittsburgh Church of Christ. And that Rocky Braat was in India as a missionary, and converted many of these kids to Christianity. Maybe it shouldn't make a difference, but ugh. Guess google had to ruin it for me...
what was his number....
Your comment on Joyce McKinney is libelous and defamatory. She was never even charged with kidnapping and raping a Mormon-- this was a PRESS HOAX which Mormon PR men and other Mormons gave to the media to discredit her because she spoke out against Mormonism. Her TRUE story is about a religious moral young woman who ran for MISS USA, who was engaged to marry a man who vanished. She found him under the clutches of the Mormon cult which is the largest cult in the world. [See the film THE GODMAKERS and hundreds of books written about Mormonism and its brainwashing tactics]. Miss McKinney's TRUE story is a love story and about a CULT RESCUE. You slander her and subject yourselves to a lawsuit by saying she was a bondage queen as that is simply not true but was a concoction by a tabloid newspaper who bribed her dog walker and his drug addicted ex con girlfriend to break into her home to steal photos which were later altered to make her appear as a nude model and a tramp. Morris repeated this libelous material without checking it out. He is no better than the tabloids himself! In reality, she was a virgin when she met her fiance, an innocent girl who doesn't smoke or drink. Errol Morris is being sued for fifty million dollars and the police are looking into Grand Theft charges on sleazy Mark Lipson and others associated with him who stole pictures out of her luggage while pretending to interview her for Showtime for a TV series on Paparazzi and how it disrupts privacy of people. They even gave her a fake "Showtime" contract. In truth, they were plotting with Mormons and the tabloid (who had bribed the crooks to rob her of pictures in 1978) to do a Pornographic Movie slandering her. Lipson was directly involved in the brutal murder of her service dog. He paid a man $2,000 to help get the dog savagely murdered-- after warning Joyce, who is physically handicapped and partially blind, that her service dog would be killed if she didn't sign a paper to absolve him of the September 2009 theft of her pictures while Morris was interviewing her for the non-existent Showtime TV series. He also trespassed where she was staying and physically assaulted her. Her mother is also in a coma after a suicide attempt caused by the filth in this movie and seeing her innocent daughter so maliciously slandered. Joyce is an innocent victim here and she and her family are devastated by this Hollywood filth which does NOT tell the TRUE Joyce McKinney story! Errol Morris deserves the slander suit he is getting, and Lipson and his thieving cronies deserve to go to JAIL. They are very sick, perverted people out for the all mighty dollar rather than TRUTH.
I appreciate Independent Weekly's thorough coverage of the Full Frame Film Festival every year. Here are some photos of the festival I took and posted to my blog:
Sure, we could have included a grid, but it really comes down to how best to use our hard copy space. Because the venues are all within a minute's walk of each other and because the schedule grid is readily available on site, we decided to focus on what we can best contribute to the festival experience.
But point noted. Glad you liked the coverage otherwise.
Great info, enticing capsule reviews.
But no grid or venue info in the hard copy.
I really enjoyed the film as well. Thought some of the bus scenes could have been edited down, but the overarching narrative was very compelling.
Couldn't disagree more on "The Visitors". I thought it was a very engaging film, gracefully done, with a story nobody else is (or will be) telling.
Hi, Just visiting from Nashville, and found several repeats from Nashville Film fest. Glad
that you're continuing, and hope to catch it next year - A FANTASTIC NASHVILLE BASED FILM IS UNCOUNTED..ABOUT ELECTION THEFT OVER THE BUSH YEARS..A MUST SEE DOCUMENTARY..H ROMAINE ATTORNEY
Thank you, Indy, for your excellent coverage of Full Frame, which, by all accounts, has been a local gem 11 years and counting. I'd like to point out, however, that the festival, though it may be a boon to indie filmmakers and critics, is not as accessible to the casual film-goer as it could be. I have first-hand experience of this, having attended the festival the past few years, and I can recount the exasperated comments from members of my film group following this past festival. Lets begin with ticket pricing, which, at $15 plus the $2.50 service fee for advance tickets, may be unremarkable to New Yorkers and Europeans flying in to see the festival and pick up a cheap iPhone at Southpoint, but is double what the local film-goer pays to see a movie. Ok many of these are first-look films that we may not get a chance to see at theaters or even on DVD - I get that. But the pricing is nevertheless prohibitive to locals who in most cases are already providing the year-round backing via tax-paying, charity and patronage that makes the festival possible in our local setting.
Secondly, the ticket categories are more than a little bit confusing to anyone who does not have the time to read the entirety of the Full Frame literature or their (god-awful) Web site - and even to many, like me, who do. Let's see, there are advance tickets, day-of tickets, tickets for passholders and last-minute tickets... Did I miss anything? I don't think the casual film fan who comes out on Saturday or Sunday is going to feel terribly welcome at this admittedly snooty film festival when something that should be as simple as purchasing a ticket becomes an ordeal of which, when, and where. And the volunteers are not informed enough to be able to help newbies to the festival understand, say, that though day-of tickets for one film are all gone, there remain limited last-minute tickets that will be available at the venue just before the screening takes place. The unfortunate consequence of all of this is that we have a fairly closed, and genuinely "foreign," film festival taking place in our own backyard, and while it may be possible for a Kimberly Roberts to win the festival, it would not be so easy for her to actually attend the festival. A shame.
As the festival continues to improve and fine-tune, I hope some thought will be given to providing a more fan-friendly experience to local residents of Durham and the greater RDU area. Let's streamline the ticketing options, and how about a "Pick 3" pass? - three screenings of your choice for $30. The effect would not just build festival attendance even more than this year's record numbers, but would also broaden and encourage the local audience base that will return to the Carolina Theatre throughout the year and will also go out and support independent cinemas from Galaxy Cinema in Cary to the Varsity and Chelsea cinemas in Chapel Hill to the Colony and Rialto in Raleigh.

I have only seen the 10 min clip of this. I would DEFINATELY like to see it completely. I understand that this film is not endorsed by DAC. Will that change any chance of it being released?
Good point! As far as I know, tickets are available online at http://www.fullframefest.org/boxoffice/tickets.php or by phone through Etix at 1-800-514-3849. Enjoy!
YOUR ARTICLE ON THE DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL WAS WELL WRITTEN AND WHETTED MY APPETITE. MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT YOU DID NOT LIST THE CONTACT NUMBER TO ORDER TICKETS.
I had a chance to see this film a few years ago as a "work in progress" at Full Frame and strongly recommend it to anyone attending the festival. No matter what you think of David Allen Coe (great country song writer or racist red neck ignorant pig), your view of DAC will be expanded by this film....a very tragic man and a fantastic film.
