VideoFest to screen LOOKING FOR HOME one night only

Documentary by Alan Govenar screens Dec. 8; opened October in New York to praise.

DALLAS – Dallas filmmaker Alan Govenar’s film, LOOKING FOR HOME, produced by Documentary Arts and distributed by First Run Features, will play a one-night-only screening at the Angelika Film Center - Dallas (Mockingbird Station, 5321 E Mockingbird Ln #230) on Thursday, Dec. 8, at 7 p.m.

Tickets $10. The event is organized by Bart Weiss as a part of Dallas VideoFest’s Curated Film Series. A Q&A with Govenar will follow.

Over the course of four years, local filmmaker Alan Govenar talked to more than 60 people around the globe about the ever-evolving ways we think and feel about one of our most basic needs – from a college student in Buenos Aires to a homeless couple living in a makeshift tent in the woods in Dallas, a hot dog vendor in New York City, an artist in Nairobi, and a man and woman whose unlikely relationship emerged during France’s Covid lockdown. The film project began before the pandemic.

The film is edited by local theatre and film artist Jason Johnson-Spinos and features several locals as subjects: Akin Babatundé; Jeremy Davis; JB, Sheryl, and Peyton Nicholson; Vicki and Bill Gies; Milane Sarquis; Yolanda Montgomery; and Carol Adams.

The film premiered in New York City at Cinema Village Oct. 21-27.
