NO STONE UNTURNED, the latest work from Academy Award and Emmy-winning director Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room), was the festival’s centerpiece film and will screen on Friday, October 20. Gibney’s documentary re-opens a 1994 investigation into the massacre of six men as they watched a World Cup soccer match in their local Northern Ireland pub. Friday, October 20, 8:30pm, Naval Heritage Center.
And VOYEUR, from directors Myles Kane and Josh Koury, is the festival’s closing night film on October 21. Voyeur follows Gay Talese, now 84 years old, a giant of modern journalism, as he reports on one of the most controversial stories of his career: a portrait of a Colorado motel owner, Gerald Foos, who spent decades spying on his guests and recording their private moments. A Netflix original documentary, Voyeur screened on Saturday, October 21, 8:30pm, Naval Heritage Center.
As DX2017 draws to a close, public awareness of investigative reporting’s importance for a vibrant democracy has never been more urgent–particularly in Washington, epicenter of the assault on verifiable truth. As grave as may be the efforts to stifle watchdog journalism, however, there is also light: a rebirth of relentless investigative reporting alongside exciting new forms of storytelling that mix journalism with film, serial podcasts in audio and video, hybrid storytelling, virtual reality–even poetry.
