Christmas, take a back seat. We documentary geeks in Arkansas know that the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival time is the hap-happiest season of all. In fact, every year, when the week-plus of gorging on docs, drinks and parties ends, I always find myself leaving the Malco in a post-fest depression, cussing the 51 weeks left until the next year. (For that matter, my Little Rock Film Festival withdrawals have been acting up lately, too.)
But now, with one month left until the 19th annual installment, the festival's organizers are taking to their Twitter account to drop a few hints about the shape of this year's schedule. Here are trailers to the 11 films they've announced so far. Expect more to come. We'll keep you updated.
"Azorian: The Raising of the K-129"
"The Desert of Forbidden Art"
"Ed Hardy: Tattoo the World"
"A Good Day to Die"
"Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child"
"Mister Rogers & Me"
