2 p.m., Market Street Cinema. Free.

It's year four for this annual free documentary festival, jointly sponsored by the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site and Market Street Cinema. The first film in the festival begins at 2 p.m., the last starts at 9 p.m. On Sunday, the first film is at 1 p.m. and the last is at 9 p.m. Several that look promising: “The Souls of Black Girls” (4 p.m. Saturday), about the “self-image disorder” women of color may be suffering because of media focus; Spike Lee's documentary “4 Little Girls” (7 p.m., Saturday) on the four Alabama girls killed in a 1963 Birmingham church bombing; “Interracial Dating in America” (9 p.m. Saturday), and “Black Gold” (7 p.m. Sunday), a documentary that unravels the tangled, and often exploitative, web of coffee production.
