Nonfiction filmmaking takes over for a week during the Music Box's first ever documentary festival. Standouts include Our Nixon, constructed in part by three of his top former aides' Super 8 footage; Evocateur: The Morton Downey, Jr. Movie, about the late conservative talk-show host; a look back at the Anita Hill–Clarence Thomas controversy, Anita: Speaking Truth to Power; and Lenny Cooke, which examines the failure of the once-hyped basketball player to live up to expectations of NBA superstardom.
