A sensation so far this year in theatres, this film is joined with seven of the Best Docs of 2010, from around the world. The Festival runs for a week and the individual movies are scheduled so that attendees can see them all. There is a festival discount pass to make this easy. One on the filmmakers will attend to present his film to the Homer Fest film lovers, who have come from all over Alaska and the Lower 48 to Homer for a great week of the best Docs in the world.
