Hot Docs Film Festival Coverage - 4 interviews & 7 reviews

The Hot Docs Film Festival is streaming on the Hot Docs site this year instead of been more officially held in Toronto in light of COVID-19 so this broadcast highlights that! Hopefully you check out these documentaries during your quarantine. In this broadcast you'll hear from Directors Lucy Kennedy & Maeve O'Boyle about their documentary 'The 8th,' which examines Irish abortion law. Next up is Director Peter Murimi chatting about his documentary 'I Am Samuel,' which looks at homosexuality in contemporary Kenya & the road to acceptance. You'll hear Director Tamara Dawit talk about her documentary 'Finding Sally,' with looks at political unrest in Ethiopia from the 1970s up until now. Then the final interview is with Director Bruno Santamaria Razo who's documentary 'Things We Dare Not Do,' is set in a quiet but violent Mexican town that eventually follows a trans woman. In between the interviews are reviews for these 4 documentaries as well as 3 other Hot Docs documentaries. You will hear about 'iHuman,' which looks at the challenges for humanity confronted by new technologies effecting warfare, the economy and elections. 'Mayor,' gets reviewed which looks at the second term Mayor of Ramallah who is focused on infrastructure more than ideology in a refreshingly municipal Palestinian story. 'All That I Am,' gets reviewed as well it looks at a returning sex slave in Norway in a dark documentary that will hopefully give someone relief to see. And of course there's great music! There's even the audio to trailers of some of Mike's favorite documentaries in a fun radio trailer extravaganza!
