Triangle Docfest at The Rialto


If you've missed any or all of the excellent crop of documentaries that have emerged from the Triangle over the last year, this Sunday in Raleigh there will be an opportunity to catch up.

The Rialto Theater will be screening five films by top local documentarians, including Cynthia Hill's Full Frame entry Tobacco Money Feeds My Family and Rebecca Cerese's widely praised February One, a record of the Greensboro lunch counter sit-ins. Also screening are Jay Spain and Jay Niver's impassioned right-to-die doc Live and Let Go: An American Death and two short films from Jim Haverkamp, Joyce Ventimiglia and Brett Ingram: The Hot Dog Man and Armor of God.

Sunday's program begins at 12 noon at The Rialto, 1620 Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh. Each film will screen twice during the course of the day. Individual tickets are $5 and all day passes are available for $15. For more information, call the theater at 856-0111 or go online to
