HOT SPRINGS DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL
10 a.m., Malco Theater, Hot Springs. $5-$50.

If you haven't yet made it to Hot Springs' annual documentary extravaganza, take heart: Much of what's already screened will play again during the festival's final four days, including nearly all of festival organizer Dan Anderson's picks for films not to miss. Among them, several that particularly stand out: "God Willing" (7:25 p.m. Thursday), a look at The Brethren cult; "Dirty Pictures" (8:45 p.m. Friday, 6:55 p.m. Sunday), a portrait of Dr. Alexander Shulgin, the famed chemist and creator of MDMA (better known as Ecstacy) and other psychedelic drugs; "Goodbye, How Are You" (3:05 p.m. Friday), an examination of how Serbians use — and misuse — language to criticize their government; "Space, Land and Time: Underground Adventures with Ant Farm" (3:30 p.m. Saturday), the first doc to explore the underground architecture and video art collective from 1970s Texas; and "Eleanore and the Timekeeper" (3:30 p.m. Sunday), a study of family, sacrifice and disability that follows a 91-year-old mother as she's forced to place her 61-year-old developmentally disabled son into a group home. If you're looking for after-hours fun to go with a night at the movies, at 10 p.m.

Thursday Austin-based folk chanteuse (and Hendrix alum) Dana Falconberry performs at Maxine's with Sunset. Friday, following the documentary "Haack: King of Techno" (9:10 p.m.), synthesizer pioneer and electronic music legend Bruce Haack offers a DJ set at Low Key Arts, 118 Arbor St. That's an absolute can't-miss for avant-garde music fans.
