Fresh Docs is SDF’s monthly, free work-in-progress screening series, in partnership with Duke's Center for Documentary Studies.

Elizabeth King / Body of Work

The Center for Documentary Studies and the Southern Documentary Fund are pleased to present a free screening of Olympia Stone's The Elizabeth King Film / Body of Work, a documentary portrait of the singularly talented artist Elizabeth King as she realizes several pieces combining figurative sculpture with stop-frame animation. The film illuminates King in and out of the studio as she painstakingly prepares work for two major shows. The film is presented as part of the Fresh Docs series featuring documentary works-in-progess; following the screenings, a moderated conversation with the filmmaker will be held, during which the audience provides valuable feedback.


Reel South is a public television showcase for documentaries about the American South, a co-production of SDF, UNC-TV, and SCETV.
