Read on for our take on some of the most notable titles screening over the next 11 days, and remember to keep coming back for even more reviews, news, and features.
The DOXA Documentary Film Festival runs at various venues from Thursday (May 3) to May 13. See the full program schedule for all 2018's DOXA Documentary Film Festival showtimes.
