The DC/DOX documentary film festival kicks off its second full festival this month, showcasing a diverse slate of nonfiction stories for a hungry audience in the nation’s capital. From politics, of course, to fashion, health, movie stars and the space program, there is a little bit of everything to choose from. There is also a very interesting constellation of films that concern aspects of the fallout from the 2020 presidential election and the riot on Jan. 6, 2021, that sought to overturn the results. DC/DOX co-founder Sky Sitney, a professor at Georgetown University’s Film and Media Studies Program, joins the podcast to discuss.
