The International Documentary Association (IDA) brings its popular DOC U seminar series (a long mainstay of the L.A. doc scene) to New York’s Tribeca Cinema. This special engagement features filmmaker Julia Bacha, a key member of the creative teams behind award-winning documentaries Encounter Point (as writer and co-director) and Control Room (as co-writer and editor). Bacha will screen clips from her films, including her latest (which she produced, directed, wrote and edited), Budrus, a compelling and inspirational look at a Palestinian community’s use of non-violent protest to thwart Israeli attempts to build a security fence through their town. Bacha will share stories and provide insight on the making of these films in an engaging and informative conversation with IDA Board President Eddie Schmidt, himself an Academy Award-nominated documentary producer. The discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A.
