"Kim Longinotto," a two-week exhibition showcasing 14 documentaries made over a 30-year span by one of today‘s preeminent documentary filmmakers. The series opens with the New York premiere of "Rough Aunties" (2009), Longinotto’s most recent film, which follows an inspiring group of "rough aunties" who protect and care for the neglected children of Durban, South Africa, through their work with the Bobbi Bear Child Welfare Organization. The film was awarded the World Cinema Jury Prize in Documentary at this year‘s Sundance Film Festival and will have its national broadcast premiere on HBO in 2010.
