Thin Line Fest will host a free screening at "Day of the Docs" from 1 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28 at Denton Movie Tavern, 916 W. University Drive. 

The event will screen five documentary films. Thin Line Fest, an annual documentary film, music and photography festival, has partnered with Indivisible Denton, a local progressive political group,  Mueve, and University of North Texas Hispanic student organization, North Texas Dream Team, a youth-driven nonprofit and Working Films production company. 

The event includes a screening of the locally-produced  Don't Frack With Denton  and America Ferrera's Out of Reach. Garrett Graham's Frack examines the Denton grassroots movment that passed a short-lived fracking ban in the city. Out of Reach follows Ferrera to Texas, where she and the filmmakers examined how American immigration policy shifted to detention and deportation during the Obama administration. 

The event will also screen DisneyNature's Earth, The Groove is Not Trivial, the story of a master fiddler and Don't Break Down: A Film About Jawbreaker.
