Luckily for New Yorkers, every season is documentary season thanks to Thom Powers and Raphaela Neilhausen's superbly curated quarterly series, Stranger Than Fiction. For its 22nd edition, the STF slate features highlights from this year's DOC NYC fest, as well as a Gotham Award recipient and an IDFA jury prize-winner. Among those we have our eye on are Neil Barsky's Koch, a portrait of New York's famously outspoken mayor; Alan Berliner's First Cousin Once Removed about a poet experiencing Alzheimer's; Zipper: Coney Island's Last Wild Ride; and Mona Eldaief and Jehane Noujaim's Rafea: Solar Mama, which follows an illiterate Bedouin woman's journey to becoming a solar engineer. Be sure to stick around after the screenings for Q&As with the filmmakers.
