The 2014 Dallas International Film Festival will present a series of Documentary Shorts, including:

Rehearsal: A surreal study of a simulated terrorist attack in middle America. Composed frames observe the meticulous care taken to stage a hyperreal terrorist event. Once the bomb goes off, hundreds of volunteers deliver a convincing performance as stunned and mutilated blast victims.

Strike: The Greatest Bowling Story Ever Told: On one seeming ordinary night underdog Bill Fong begins to get strike after strike, nearing the ever elusive “perfect series”, a feat only achieved 21 times since 1895. The achievement would be historical, the first for Texas and the first by an Asian-American.

The Diggers: A documentary on two grave diggers from King City.

EDUCAUTION: A short documentary about the student loan debt crisis.

The Home Team: What’s in the water of Murray, Kentucky that such a small, tight-knit town is home to such an extraordinary basketball team? Murray’s love for The Home Team runs deep, and on the night of the big game, a single act of generosity changes everything.

3 Acres in Detroit: Two guerilla gardeners want to make Detroit a little greener – with organic farming.

Hacked Circuit: This circular study of the Foley process portrays sound artists at work constructing complex layers of fabrication and imposition.
