Doc.tober 2020

I'm trying to start a writing habit (and disrupt a few other habits).


I have a long personal and professional passion for creative and point-of-view documentary films. Lately, I've been whinging about how difficult it is to get attention on this work, how the attention economy has not been friendly to the form where it is at its most interesting, expansive, expressive.


Meanwhile, aside from professional obligations, I find myself rarely choosing a feature documentary film from the overwhelming options offered, in this time of peak TV, for my viewing pleasure.


My personal challenge in this month of October 2020 is to watch and publish notes on a documentary film (or series) each day through the month.


Welcome to Not Fiction, my new blog, and Doc.tober, my challenge.


Join me if you have the time. Make the time if you don't.
