Screen Time: Week of September 5

From 'Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me.'

Screen Time is your curated weekly guide to excellent documentaries and nonfiction programs that you can watch at home.

Currently streaming on Netflix is James Keach's Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me, a chronicle of the recently departed country music icon, who embarked on a farewell tour after receiving an Alzheimer's diagnosis. The Washington Post calls the film "important and triumphant."

Premiering September 8 on Filmstruck is Barbet Schroeder's General Idi Amin Dada, in which the filmmaker turns his cameras on the infamous tyrant, revealing the dynamic, charming, and appallingly dangerous man whose fanatical neuroses held an entire nation in their grip. 

Premiering September 8 on American Masters is Pamela Tom's Tyrus. Until his death at the age of 106, Tyrus Wong (1910-2016) was America’s oldest living Chinese American artist and one of the last remaining artists from the golden age of Disney animation.
