What's Coming At Full Frame

Full Frame Documentary Film Festival
Full Frame

The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival's annual celebration of the documentary brings artists from around the world to Durham. This year, the lineup includes a rich variety of offerings from filmmakers based in North Carolina.

Host Frank Stasio talks with a few of the state's directors about their films. Director Nancy Buirski and producer Elisabeth Haviland James preview "The Loving Story," a full-length feature on the Virginia couple who successfully challenged laws against interracial marriage in the 1960s. Director Rodrigo Dorfman expounds on his short film "One Night in Kernersville," which looks at Durham-based jazz musician John Brown's dream of a studio recording come true. And Josh Gibson explains how the South's most invasive plant inspired his poetic short film "Kudzu Vine."

Amber Nimocks came to The State of Things in January 2009. She is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a survivor of 15 years in the newspaper business. As a reporter and editor, her posts have included such exotic locales as her hometown of Fayetteville, Robeson County, Wilmington, Raleigh and Fort Worth, Texas.
Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
