Though Full Frame draws filmmakers from around the country, and even the world, it doesn’t neglect its home state. Here are a few docs with Tar Heel ties to look for at the festival this year.

THE JAZZ LOFT ACCORDING TO W. EUGENE SMITH (April 7, 10:10 a.m)From 1957 to 1965, W. Eugene Smith, a former Life magazine photographer who left his job and family, documented the legendary jazz musicians and other cultural figures who dropped by his dilapidated Manhattan loft for nocturnal jam sessions. Directed by Sara Fishko, the film is part of a larger, decade-long project organized by Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies.

OFF THE RAILS (April 7, 7:20 p.m.)Asperger’s syndrome and an obsession with New York City transit plagues Darius McCollum, who has been arrested more than thirty times and spent more than twenty years in prison for commandeering New York City trains and buses. McCollum’s parents retired to North Carolina, and several minutes of this world premiere show McCollum visiting his mother in Winston-Salem.

A HOUSE WITHOUT SNAKES (April 8, 1 p.m.)Directed by Elon University alumnus Daniel Koehler, this world-premiere short features two young Bushman in Botswana forced to find their futures against the backdrop of upheaval in their homeland.
