The annual documentary film festival is back, covering everything from cooking and cuisine to stage theatre
An antidote to all those summer blockbusters, Life is Art returns with a new line-up of documentary films covering all aspects of culture. This year’s categories include: music, fashion, photography, dance, theatre, art, painting, food and architecture. Whether you’re a fan of Noma or Robert Mapplethorpe, there’s something for all culture vultures here.
Particular highlights for 2016 include Oscar-winning director Ron Howard’s coverage of the Fab Four in The Beatles: Eight Days A Week, The First Monday in May’s behind-the-scenes peak at the Met Gala ball and the workings of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, and a look at the ancient practice of sake making in Kampai! For the Love of Sake.
