A revelation about Oscar Torres, her unknown and once world-famous queer filmmaker cousin, sends Victoria down a path of self-discovery through reconstructions of his intimate memories living in the 1950s authoritarian Caribbean, as Victoria leads re-enactments of his unproduced screenplays with the family who erased him.
For the last nine years, DOC NYC has screened the documentary feature that went on to win the Academy Award and 24 of the last 25 Oscar-nominated documentary features.
Guide audiences, industry, and press toward inspiring work, including discovering new talent and highlighting the year’s top films; connect filmmakers with audiences and provide creators with educational, networking and promotional opportunities throughout the year; attract local, national and international newcomers with the excitement of a festival atmosphere; share compelling stories from artists of all backgrounds and embrace creative guests, industry decision-makers, and audiences from all cultures, ages, abilities and identities – are some mission statements of the DOC NYC.
