Wednesday to Weekend To-Do: Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival

HOT SPRINGS DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL
Various times. Mostly at the Malco Theater.

The 20th anniversary Hot Springs Film Festival rolls into its final weekend with a number of promising docs: Festival director Dan Anderson called “John Frum, He Will Come,” about a cult religion on the South Pacific island of Tanna that believes an American deity named John Frum will come and bring salvation, one of his favorites (7 p.m., Oct. 19; 6:35 p.m., Oct. 21). Acclaimed food documentarian Joe York shifts his focus in “Mississippi Innocence” (3 p.m. Oct. 22), which follows Levon Brooks and Kennedy Brewer, two men who spent years behind bars for crimes they didn’t commit. The title alone of “T’Ain’t Nobody’s Bizness: Queer Blues Divas of the 1920s” (2:50 p.m. Oct. 20) has me intrigued. But the big draw, of course, is “Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory,” the latest chapter in Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky’s hugely influential documentaries on the West Memphis Three (8:35 p.m. Oct. 21). Full schedule at www.hsdfi.org.

Also: Blair Tidwell offers a review of the opening weekend at the HSDFF.
