Director Errol Morris has tackled one man’s wrongful murder conviction in The Thin Blue Line, former Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara’s life in The Fog of War and the death of Frank Olson, who fell out of a hotel window nine days after his CIA bosses dosed him with LSD, in his upcoming Netflix docudrama Wormwood. But in The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography, he profiles his off-beat friend, who’s spent the last 50 years using a 235-pound Polaroid 20x24 camera to photograph everyone from beat poet Allen Ginsberg to Aerosmith's Steven Tyler. The Los Angeles Times says, “This is the rare Morris movie that feels led by the personality of its star figure, in this case Dorfman's wry positivity and love of what she does, rather than his need to probe.” 7 p.m. Saturday. 14 Pews, 800 Aurora.
