13th Annual San Francisco Documentary Festival: Opening Night
Featuring the film "Actress"
June 5, 8pm
Once a rising star on the iconic HBO TV drama THE WIRE, Brandy Burre became pregnant and gave up her acting career to start a family. She now leads a picturesque domestic existence in upstate New York. But Brandy breaks things—rules, expectations—and can’t not perform.
Using elements of staged melodrama and cinema verité, ACTRESS is a beautifully intimate portrait of a performer coming face to face with life's difficult compromises, while reframing the complex-yet-familiar question: Can women have it all? It’s a film about starring in the movie of your life.
SF DocFest is an annual festival devoted to documentary cinema. Since 2001, this two week-long event has brought the most weird and wonderful aspects of real life to the big screen.
