Daring Docs DVD
A documentary tour-de-force, this 3-disc set features a collection of unconventional documentaries from three distinctive and daring directors, all the subjects of their own films. "Waiting for Fidel" (1974) follows Canadian director Michael Rubbo as he journeys to Cuba in the hopes of interviewing Fidel Castro. In "Late Night Talks With Mother" (2001), Czech filmmaker Jan Nemec conducts an imaginary dialogue with his long-dead mother in order to relive their complicated relationship. "Voyage in Time" (1983) follows Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky as he travels to Italy to begin a new film after his work is censored in Russia.
