What’s Up, Docs?


This year’s documentary showcase, What’s Up, Docs?, features 12 new short films exploring a smorgasbord of subjects from art, science and religion to culture and politics. The diverse program profiles local musician/painter Salvador Duran; fish, amphibian and reptile enthusiasts creating elaborate aquariums, herpetariums and terrariums; and a Tohono O’odham female power-lifter training for a competition; local Satanic Temple members; EMTs in training; underground artists performing in a local DIY space; the inventor of the insect sting pain index, and the You Tube star who popularized it. From a polarizing Trump rally in Phoenix to a custom car rally, a peek behind the scenes of an improv comedy group, and a personal meditation on the equivocal attractions of Greek life, this year’s eclectic slate of films features something for everyone. (Various directors, 2017, USA, approximately 120 minutes, Not Rated)
