Borders are more than arbitrary lines on a map, they’re also a means of controlling and mediating reality. But as the refugee crisis continues to expand, traditional barriers are failing. We are witnessing the largest human migration in history. In the face of this, the places we draw off in our mind - what is right or appropriate -- are also being challenged. Our Spotlight on Borders and Boundaries examines the ongoing negotiation between these physical and conceptual divisions.

DOXA dives headlong into the nonfiction universe. Whether it is one of the best BASE jumpers in the world or the great Maya Angelou soaring the heights of literary fame, this year’s selection of films take a leap of faith in the quest for justice, peace, freedom and naked glory.

Be one of the first to put your hands on to the 2016 DOXA Documentary Film Festival Program Book and have it mailed to your door.  The cut off for ordering a mailed book is April 6 at 9:00am. Program Books will be mailed out on April 7, 2016.
