Online via Zoom **NEW** **Workshop Waitlisted**

Join fellow documentary film fans for lively discussions of thought-provoking documentary films available on Netflix, YouTube, or Kanopy. Each member will choose a film from a list which will be sent to all participants and will introduce the film and start the discussion. Two films will be selected for each two hour session. Different aspects of the films may be examined including themes, the director, and the production values. Members will view the films on their own before each meeting.

The sub-genres for the selected documentary films may include science, nature, history, biographies, music, sports, crime, socio-political issues, and technology.

Members will rate the films and we will compare our ratings to the group and online ratings.
