4th Annual Stinson Beach DocFest

Presented by Stinson Beach Community Center at Stinson Beach Community Center, Stinson Beach CA

Nov 03 - 05 2017
4th Annual Stinson Beach DocFest

Featuring 5 of the Best Documentaries of 2017!

Benefiting the Stinson Beach Community Center, the 4th Annual Stinson Beach Documentary Film Festival presents 3 evenings of the 2017’s best docs:


Friday, Nov. 3rd @ 8pm:  Rumble, a rollicking, award-winning film about Native American musicians’ impact on rock and roll, will follow the Opening Night Gala, featuring live music by the Jeff Castro and Michael Knowlton Duo and a delicious “Tastes of West Marin” dinner by “Fishtales” chef, David Cook.


Saturday, Nov. 4th, 5pm:  Bending the Arc, a stunning documentary about a team of young people — Paul Farmer, Jim Yong Kim, Ophelia Dahl — whose charitable medical work 30 years ago in remote Haiti came to ignite a healthcare movement.

Saturday, Nov. 4th @ 7pm:  The Last Dalai Lama?  A true-life fairy tale: the boy plucked from the obscurity of poverty at age two and declared to be the reincarnation of the previous Dalai Lama; his escape from Tibet after the Chinese takeover; his serenity in exile and his research into meditation as a “science of the mind.”


Sunday, Nov. 5th, 5pm:  Dolores corrects a historic oversight, giving proper credit to Dolores Huerta, a hero of the American labor movement — and a few other movements to boot. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Cesar Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century, continuing to this day, at 87.

Sunday Nov. 5th, 7pm:  Letters from Baghdad tells the extraordinary and dramatic story of Gertrude Bell, the most powerful woman in the British Empire in her day. It is a unique look at both a remarkable woman and the tangled history of Iraq that is eerily current.
