Documentary Love

New York’s IFC Center has given voice to some of the world’s most critically acclaimed independent films, shone the spotlight on up-and-coming talent and introduced topics often ignored in mainstream cinema.

This week IFC Center’s documentary film series, Stranger Than Fiction, celebrates its 14th season, showcasing sneak previews of new films and bringing back lost classics. 

This season’s lineup features films that run the gamut of emotions, from Surviving Hitler: A Love Story (2010), which follows a Jewish woman and German soldier’s unsuccessful plot to kill Hitler, to Marlene (1984), a documentary about the glamorous and influential show woman Marlene Dietrich. 

Stranger Than Fiction documentaries are screened every Tuesday for ten weeks. Films begin at 8:00 p.m. and are followed by director Q&As and gatherings at nearby bars. Tickets range from $8-13 and can be purchased online or at the IFC box office.
