“Quite simply the most tactile, intimate and compelling war documentary ever made… An incredibly powerful, nuanced and well crafted piece of work.” – Todd Brown,

About The DocYard:
For decades, Boston has been a center for documentary filmmaking. It is a place where students come to learn and experiment, where some of documentary’s giants are teaching and creating new work, and where the craft is continuously nurtured and expanded. Today’s filmmakers are breaking new ground that has its foundation, more often than not, in Boston’s rich documentary legacy.

Celebrating what is innovative, interesting, and inspiring in documentary, The DocYard is a bi-weekly film and discussion series at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge. Every other Tuesday from February through April, we will gather together to be introduced to films and filmmakers and connect with one another.

Our goal is to grow a vibrant, creative community for Boston’s filmmakers, film students and film lovers through each of these special events.
