The documentary No Strangers, which discusses the world through the eyes of photographers, is a nice ride which is both educational and mesmerizing. The film includes personal stories and social perceptions from each individual as well as showing their vivid imagery.

Interestingly enough, right from the beginning, writer and photographer Wade Davis creates a metaphysical base on which the film is built. Despite discussing social concepts which lead to historical accuracies and cultural perspectives, much of the film derives from abstract, experimental concepts of the world, who we are, how we live and feel the same despite the differences.

The documentary does well by showing photographic evidence of the photographers' journeys, but it truly captivates because of the very different views and territories explored by the different photographers.

The documentary is part of the [[DC Independent Film Festival]] and will play on Saturday, February 22nd, in the 5-7PM block. Tickets are $12.
