Project Description

Spotlight on The New York Times’s Op-Docs

Includes a conversation with the New York Times’s Op-Docs filmmakers

The New York Times‘ award-winning, popular, and thought-provoking series of original short films, made specifically for its website, receives its second night on the big screen at the Bing Theater. Series producer and curator Jason Spingarn-Koff selects a group of some of the most memorable and lively Op-Docs to have premiered on the site in the past 12 months, including Daredevil on a Snowmobile by Academy Award® nominee Lucy Walker, the comedic performance film Verbatim by Brett Weiner, the Peabody Award–winning A Short History of the Highrise by Katerina Cizek, and the international hit 35 and Single by Paula Schargorodsky. Elvis Mitchell moderates a discussion about the projects and the frontiers of online filmmaking with several Op-Docs filmmakers and Spingarn-Koff.
