This year’s lineup sports an array of feature films, including the Stephen Spielberg-produced documentary “Finding Oscar.” We’re introduced to Oscar and Ramiro, known as the sole survivors of the Dos Erres Massacre in Guatemala in 1982. Both boys were abducted during the attack and raised by the men responsible. Music lovers should be sure to catch the Saturday afternoon screening of “Bang!”
