Image for Stranger Than Fiction

Documentaries have never enjoyed greater renown or bigger commercial success. They speak truth to power, illuminate lives both great and small, allow us to journey to corners of the earth we may never visit and confront issues we had never thought to consider. The best documentaries have the power to open our eyes and win our hearts. This year’s outstanding Stranger than Fiction offerings include fresh insights into the extraordinary lives of Toni Morrison, Barry Gifford and Truman Capote. The incredibly moving One Taxi Ride explores the horror of abuse and one man’s ability to regain his life. We are thrilled that Anthony Baxter is back with Flint, a shocking, profoundly touching portrait of the fate of one American community and the greater truths that reveals about the injustices of the modern world. These are vital, engaging works of cinema that come straight from the heart and are guaranteed to get you talking.
