Moreover, the movies join a growing list of works in pop culture, such as Christopher Noxon's book "Rejuvenile," that reflect a generation which, as it matured, ...

Noting that festivals like Sundance, Seattle, IDFA, or the NYFF simply don't receive such films, he quotes Wash Westmoreland (director of the upcoming narrative feature "Quinceanera" and the recent doc "Gay Republicans"), The thing that drives you to make a documentary is seeing it as a way to social change.
