AFI-Discovery Channel Silverdocs Guggenheim Symposium to Honor Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky

AFI-Discovery Channel Silverdocs will honor Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky at this year’s Guggenheim Symposium, for their collective and individual contributions to the documentary genre. 

Since their award-winning BROTHER’S KEEPER (1992), Berlinger and Sinofsky have been leading voices in American nonfiction cinema. Among their landmark films are PARADISE LOST: THE CHILD MURDERS AT ROBIN HOOD HILLS (1996), PARADISE LOST 2: REVELATIONS (2000), METALLICA: SOME KIND OF MONSTER (2004), the Academy Award nominated PARADISE LOST 3: PURGATORY (2011) and Berlinger’s UNDER AFRICAN SKIES (2012), which is now in distribution and focuses on Paul Simon’s return to South Africa to explore the journey of his 1986 Grammy Award winning “Graceland” album.

The Guggenheim Symposium will include excerpts from their work. Following the screening, Berlinger and Sinofsky will be joined by Indiewire Co-Founder and Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Eugene Hernandez, and other special guests, to engage in a discussion of Berlinger and Sinofsky’s career.
