The biennial Getting Real conference has been such a rich and rewarding well of ideas, issues and themes to draw from, as we continually rethink our editorial strategy—so that we are truly serving the documentary community with a robust palette of content from around the world. Getting Real has always spurred us to consider where we need to go deeper and further as a publication. With that, five of the articles we commissioned here complement the spirit of Getting Real, from different angles.

IDA-Supported Doc of the Week

This week's Doc of the Week is a journey across five countries in Europe exploring the Black diaspora outside of the Black American identity. Hoping to bridge the communication gaps between the African American communities and the international Black diaspora, the film shares these parallels and connections to allow for open and genuine dialogue between Black communities across the globe, expanding the perception of what Blackness is and can be.
