Highlights from Day Two at DOC NYC
Fashion, family, and a mystery in six parts on day two of DOC NYC
Day two of DOC NYC featured films that dove headfirst into complicated family dynamics, the glamorous and cut-throat world of 1970’s fashion, and an in-depth chronicle of a Manhattan murder mystery.
Director Errol Morris, recipient of this year’s DOC NYC Visionaries Award, again forges new ground with Wormwood, his six-part Netflix series that investigates the unusual circumstances around the 1953 death of CIA agent Frank Olson. Directed by Rachel Dretzin and based on Andrew Solomon’s bestselling novel, Far From the Tree is a touching and intimate portrait of families bonded together not only by blood, but by the struggles they share and overcome together. Illustrator Antonio Lopez set the fashion world on fire, introducing hot looks and big talent that rocked New York and Paris, and director James Crump spares no details in Antonio Lopez 1970: Sex, Fashion and Disco, a wild romp through one of the most outrageous eras of haute couture.
