ASKED AT THE DEL MAR THEATRE

I like the documentary Samsara because it’s visually beautiful, moving and compelling, and it shows you things about humans on a scale that you would never see by yourself. —Erielle Laniewski, farmers' market employee

The documentary When You’re Strange about the Doors. It made rock ’n’ roll accessible to me. It had me feel that with enough gathered vision, and if you have a unique, artistic perspective to share, then people will pay attention. —Stephan Sams, manager and projectionist at The Del Mar and singer in the band The Redlight District

The recent Kurt Cobain HBO documentary Montage of Heck was remarkable. They constructed it using thousands of pictures, drawings and recordings. It is pure genius from a tortured soul. [It shows that] life is brutal. —Jared Haiduk, window cleaner

The documentary that most impacted me is the [ESPN 30 for 30 video series installment] Bad Boys, about the Detroit Pistons. It taught me that with time and determination you can achieve any goal. —Ryan Winters, robotic engineer
