SF DocFest gets underway on Thursday, June 5th-19th and has a wide range of female-produced and gender-centered documentaries. This week we preview two multi-faceted locally produced stories:
FIRST FRIDAY, produced by N'jeri Eaton, directed by Mario Furloni, chronicles Oakland's "First Friday" the month after a tragic murder at what Eaton calls the crown jewel of Oakland's cultural scene.
In GOODBYE GAULEY MOUNTAIN: An Ecosexual Love Story, queer activists Beth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle do their bit to stop mountaintop removal in Beth's home community of West Virginia by marrying the Mountain. They bring a mix of humor, art and sexuality to help "green the queer movement."
