Our local, world-class docufest hits full stride today and Washington Life is a major sponsor. If you’re in Silver Spring during the day, you can pop into AFI for some of the free short films from noon to 1:30. Today’s program includes poodle training, bird watching, and a deer adopted by cows. Highlights for later today include HIS & HERS (6 pm), in which dozens of Irish women and girls tell the camera about their troublesome menfolk; STEAM OF LIFE (6:45 pm), in which just the men talk about everything while sitting in Finnish saunas; and the much-anticipated RIDE RISE ROAR (10:30 pm), following the creative process and collaboration of musicians Brian Eno and David Byrne. SILVERDOCS runs through Sunday, with hundreds of films; watch this blog for more and see details at silverdocs.com.
