Various times. Arlington Hotel, Hot Springs. $5-$150.

The Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival enters its final days with a promising line-up.

At 7 p.m. Wednesday, "The Perfect Victims" makes its world premiere. The film tells the story of three women convicted of killing their abusive husbands who were denied the opportunity to enter the abuse into evidence (it screens again at 1:30 p.m. Sunday).

"Detropia," perhaps the most acclaimed film in the festival, examines the economic devastation of Detroit. It plays at 7:20 p.m. Thursday. Fans of cinema verite and history, take special note: On Friday, beginning at 6:55 p.m., the festival will screen a trilogy of films by verite pioneer Robert Drew on John F. Kennedy, the short "Primary" and features "Adventures on the New Frontier" (about the early days of the Kennedy presidency) and "Crisis" (about Kennedy's showdown with George Wallace over the integration of the University of Alabama).

Three shorts by Larry Foley on Crystal Bridges ("Art of Crystal Bridges"), Fayetteville ("Up Among the Hills") and Arkansas Baptist ("Growing Hope") screen at 4 p.m. Saturday.

At 7 p.m. that night director James Keach screens his work in progress documentary on Glen Campbell's Goodbye Tour, which was filmed in part in Arkansas. Members of the Campbell family will be in attendance. The complete schedule is available here.
