CANCELLED The Bozeman Doc Series presents Day After...

The Doc Series is very sorry to share with you that due to circumstances beyond our control, this Thursday's screening of Day After... has been canceled. Just two days after we told you the screening would be a first for the Doc Series in a few ways, it is now, unfortunately, a first in a different way. It is the first screening in seven seasons we've had to cancel for non-Covid related reasons. We are sad to have to do it and encourage you all to watch for it on streaming platforms sometime soon. It is absolutely worth seeing.

If you purchased tickets for the film, you have two options. If you want to keep your tickets on our will-call list and use them for a different screening this season (we have five more screenings planned), you don't need to do anything. They are on the list now and will be there when you want to use them. If you'd like a refund, let us know through the contact form on our website, and we'll get it done right away. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The Doc Series will continue two weeks from tomorrow, on Thursday, April 21st, with our special Earth Day event and the Montana premiere of River, from award-winning director Jennifer Peedom.

On Thursday, April 7th, at 7pm at the Emerson, the Bozeman Doc Series is excited to present the Montana premiere of the new documentary, Day After..., from award-winning Bangladeshi filmmaker Kamar Ahmad Simon. The Rocket is a century-old paddle steamer with regular sailings from the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka, transporting passengers to various destinations along the river. This double-decker vessel has clearly seen better days, but it’s still a popular means of transport for passengers from all walks of life. Days onboard are filled with a little bit of everything: there is singing and dancing, eating and drinking, praying and vlogging, debating and arguing, tears and laughter. Along the way, this deeply immersive film captures it all, revealing a fascinating portrait of contemporary Bangladesh. Rich and poor, young and old, East and West - all make appearances in this kaleidoscopic film brimming with universal everyday concerns, stark contrasts, and deep wisdom. Day After... world premiered at last fall's prestigious IDFA festival in Amsterdam and will have its North American premiere at the First Look Festival at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City on March 19th. "Unassuming but irresistibly immersive…Don’t be fooled by the bland title: this intelligently-observed chronicle of a vintage paddle-steamer’s chaotic two-day journey from capital Dhaka to provincial Khulna ranks among the year’s most accomplished and memorable non-fiction enterprises." Screen Daily “Delightful...Simon documents the journey with both geographical and sociopolitical fascination, drinking in the scenery while wryly observing the tangle of classes, castes and character types on deck. The loose, entertaining result is equal parts leisurely travelogue, observational social study and droll real-life comedy of errors, and premiered in competition at IDFA to an enthusiastic audience reception.” Variety MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED AND CAPACITY WILL BE LIMITED TO PROVIDE FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING IN THE THEATER. Tickets are available at the door or before the show online at, where you can also buy Season Passes and 7-film punch cards, learn more about the series, and view trailers for upcoming films. The series will continue every other Thursday through April.
