If you are so excited about documentaries that you always can’t even wait another minute to see one, you’re in luck. Two of the most talked-about documentaries showing during SF Docfest will be previewed Tuesday night at the Roxie. There’s the film 10th Parallel, in which a Brazilian director takes the audience on a journey 300 miles into the Amazon to visit one of those groups of people who’ve never met other folks. Then there’s the Sundance Award-winning The Machine Which Makes Everything Disappear, made by a Georgian (country not state) filmmaker, who traveled her country interviewing young adults from all different walks of life. This preview is the introduction to the DocFest, which runs June 6-23 and celebrates the documentary form. The Fest’ll showcase films on all topics, from Burning Man to Bettie Page, from Pussy Riot to roller disco, from AIDS to architecture.
