Showbiz Kids: This documentary, written and directed by Alex Winter (Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure), takes a look at the risks and rewards of being a child actor. During the film, former and current child actors talk about their experiences, sacrifices, and come to terms with the hardships they faced.
Stockton On My Mind: Michael Tubbs became the youngest mayor of a major city and Stockton’s first African-American mayor in 2016 at the age of 26. During the documentary, viewers will see Tubbs’ efforts and inspiration to reverse the fortunes of a city that is known as one of the most impoverished, most violent, and least literate cities.
I’ll Be Gone in the Dark: Based on a book of the same name written by Michelle McNamara, the six-part documentary looks into the Golden State Killer.
“This film provides a look behind the curtain of Washington politics by following three renegade Republican Congressmen as they bring libertarian and conservative zeal to champion the President’s call to “drain the swamp,” while facing demands to raise money for their re-election campaigns and the Republican national party. Directors Daniel DiMauro and Morgan Pehme track Republican Congressmen Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Thomas Massie (R-KY), and Ken Buck (R-CO) over the course of a pivotal year in politics, demonstrating the breadth and grip of a system that rewards fundraising above all else, plaguing Congress on both sides of the aisle. With unique behind-the-scenes access to the inner workings of the House of Representatives amid major breaking news events, including the Mueller hearing and President Donald Trump’s impeachment proceedings, the film presents a revealing look at the core democratic institution of American government.”
