"Perververance" provides a unifying theme to the spring season of DecaturDocs, the nonfiction film screening-and-discussion series held at Decatur High School. The three documentaries focus on the dedication and discipline of three diverse groups of people.

4th & Goal (Sat., April 30). Nina Gilden Seavey, founder of The Documentary Center, follows six top high school prospects from college pledge all the way through to the NFL Draft. Producer George Rush and special guests will be on hand.

Superheroes (Sat., May 14). Michael Barnett considers the unsung real-world do-gooders who fight for justice through community service and social activism, including Atlanta homeless advocates Crimson Fist and Metadata. Indiewire referred to the film as a highlight of the 2011 Slamdance Film Festival.

Puppet (Sat., June 11). David Soll chronicles puppeteer Dan Hurlin's painstaking attempt to present a theatrical show about the life and work of Depression-era photographer Mike Disfarmer.

DecaturDocs Series subscriptions include all three shows for $36; “Double-Shot” tickets (good for two shows) are $25 and single screening tickets are $15. Decatur High School, 310 N. McDonough St., Decatur. For series information, call 678-658-0787 or visit
