The New York Times’ Op-Doc series is a collection of award-winning short documentaries. Produced by renowned and emerging filmmakers, the films are a testament to power and impact of short-form storytelling.

Over the course of eight Op-Doc films, Kalakala invites viewers to examine a wide range of societal issues—from gun control reform to why we eat turkey (and not eel!) on Thanksgiving—with incisive wit and satire.
