9th Annual Doc10 Documentary Film Festival

See the best of the best in documentary film at the 2024 Doc10 Documentary Film Festival, May 2-5 at the Davis Theatre and Gene Siskel Film Center in downtown Chicago. Doc10 opens on Thursday, May 2, with DEVO, a spirited, irreverent portrait of the legendary new wave band from Akron, Ohio from director Chris Smith (American Movie, Tiger King). DEVO band members will join Doc10 in a live, virtual Q&A moderated by WXRT’s Marty Lennartz.

On Friday night, May 3, the Festival continues to soar with the Chicago premiere of Sundance
sensation SUPER/MAN: THE CHRISTOPHER REEVE STORY. Never-before-seen home
movies and extraordinary personal archives reveal how Christopher Reeve went from unknown
actor to iconic movie star as the ultimate screen superhero.

The festival’s Closing Night film WAR GAME, a compelling docu-thriller chronicling a “war
game” future-simulation set on January 6, 2025 with prominent experts role-playing parts in a
scenario inspired by the January 6th Capitol Riots, will also feature a high-powered
post-screening panel conversation. Scheduled to attend include directors Jesse Moss and Tony
Gerber and film subjects Steve Bullock (former Governor of Montana), Heidi Heitkamp (former
Senator of North Dakota), retired Major General Linda Singh, and National Security expert
Elizabeth Neumann.
