This four-part feature documentary series from Netflix features best-selling author, talk show host, and stand-up comedian Chelsea Handler as she explores topics of personal fascination: marriage, racism, drugs, and Silicon Valley. She’s no expert in these areas, but that won’t stop her from digging in. Bringing her signature brand of humor and unfiltered opinions with her—she challenges convention—she goes there. Chelsea Does is directed by Academy Award–nominated Eddie Schmidt and is executive produced by Chelsea Handler and Academy Award–winning director Morgan Neville.

The Festival debuts “Chelsea Does Marriage,” with Chelsea Handler traveling to different places to get the best answers about everything that comes with marriage. Through conversations with her father, her ex-boyfriend, young children, and the former CEO of Ashley Madison and his wife, among others. We see her open up and talk about her own relationships, calibrating who she is and where she falls on this topic along the way.

The screening is followed by a conversation and Q&A with Chelsea Handler, Eddie Schmidt and, Morgan Neville.
