During the BFI London Film Festival, DocGeeks will present you every day with a bite-size oversight of the documentaries screening at the various festival locations.
A relatively quiet seventh day with only three documentary screenings and one event:
At the BFI Southbank, the hearth of the festival, at 1.15pm there will be a screening of the documentary Winter Nomads (Hiver nomade) to attend. This extraordinary documentary shows us a little known aspect of rural Europe as we follow an interestingly staunch couple leading their 800 sheep across Switzerland from one grazing area to another – a 600km journey.
At 6.15pm at the BFI Southbank the award-winning documentarian Alex Gibney talks about his career to date, including his latest film, Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God.
Bayou Blue, a chilling documentary about serial killer Ronald Dominique, who raped and murdered 23 men in the Bayou Blue area in Louisiana before being caught, will screen at the BFI Southbank at 8.45pm. — This film will also be screening at BFI Southbank on 17 October 3:45pm and at the Ritzy on 20 October at 6:30 pm.
The documentary Turned Towards the Sun, screening at the BFI Southbank at 9pm, tells the astonishing life story of British writer and poet Micky Burn MC. A tale so diverse and bizarre you will struggle to accept it as truth. –This film will also be screening at BFI Southbank on 17 October 1.15pm.
Tickets can be ordered on the BFI London Film Festival website.
