Hot Entertainment: Documentary Film Festival DOXA Comes to Vancouver

Story of BURQA: Case of a Confused Afghan, a documentary shown at DOXA

When it comes to film, it doesn’t get more real than documentaries. Enter DOXA (May 4 to 13), a documentary film festival that started in 2000 and continues to make waves. This year’s line-up runs the gamut: Story of BURQA: Case of a Confused Afghan (pictured), a timely look at how cloth has ignited controversy and fear; Bear 71, a groundbreaking mix of live performance and music alongside grizzly bear footage; and VITO, an inspiring look at AIDS activist Vito Russo.—Jennifer Patterson
