LOMAX - (Short Before THE WINDING STREAM)
In 1941, folklorist Alan Lomax was sent by the Library of Congress to the Mississippi Delta to record an oral history of the blues. Hauling five hundred pounds of audio equipment powered by his car battery, Lomax ventured across nameless roads to discover the most beautiful and harrowing songs ever sung.Presented by the Association for Cultural Equity, Alan Lomax's founding organization, this spirited folktale reimagines his meeting with Bill Henley, an elderly recluse living in the backwoods of Lula, Mississippi. Starring James "Tail Draggerî" Jones, protege of Chicago bluesman Howlin' Wolf, and Georg Koszulinski as Alan Lomax, the film honors a fearless crusader and the countless people he gave voice to, in both their human and mythic capacities.

The Winding Stream
The Winding Stream tells the story of the American roots music dynasty, the Carters and the Cashes.  Starting with the Original Carter Family, the film traces the ebb and flow of their influence, the transformation of that act into the Carter Sisters, June CarterÍs marital alliance with legend Johnny Cash, and the efforts of present-day family to keep this long musical legacy alive. The Carters didnÍt just play the music of the hill country. They helped invent it.  A.P. was both composer and song collector, arranging snippets of ancient, musty melodies into commercial American popular music.  Maybelle took the then-underutilized guitar and made it into the cornerstone of country instrumentation, in no small part by developing innovative ways of playing it that are now commonplace. And Sara became the first well-known womanÍs voice in country music, stamping it with the eerie Gothic quality we find in so much of that genreÍs canon now. The stream these three created has turned into a rushing river and has moved through several generations of musicians. Arguably, there would be no Folk Revival of the ï60s without them, no country-rock bands of the 70s, and no alt-country hipsters of our present era. Will the Circle Be Unbroken?  Keep on the Sunny Side. Worried Man Blues.  Are You Lonesome Tonight?  These are just some of the hundreds of songs the Original Carter Family presented to the world. ItÍs hard to overstate their influence on American music.

Grace.

Gracie knows hangovers. She’s intimately acquainted with them. But this one? Why did she wake up, half-dressed, on a Florida beach, 1100 miles from home? Suspicious and distrustful of everyone, including a café owner with a troubled history of her own, Gracie prefers the relief of alcohol – which had always worked for her. When she’s arrested for public drunkenness, Gracie is given a choice: six months in jail or 90 meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous in 90 days, and she has to do it in the small town she’s landed in. She’s not used to strangers caring about her, but perhaps the power of community can help her sidestep the land mines lining her path to sobriety – especially the ones she’s laid herself. “GRACE.” compassionately looks at the disease of addiction through a young woman inching towards redemption.

Life Inside Out
Life Inside Out tells the story of Laura, the mother of three teenage boys, and her youngest son Shane, the family misfit and a disappointment to his father. When we first meet Laura, she is half-heartedly hosting a scrap booking party for her sister Lydia's new multi-level marketing business. When she stumbles upon her long forgotten guitar, a gift from her mother and the former passion of her youthful life, she is taken under its spell and soon rediscovers her love for songwriting. Shane, sullen, ear buds perpetually in his ears, has cut himself off from the activities that his father and brothers enjoy. When Laura impulsively decides to sing at her first open-mic night, she takes Shane along for the ride; an act of both pity and motherly instinct. Her first performance is a borderline disaster but with Shane's encouragement, she eventually tries again. Despite her rocky entry into the late night melange of musicians and unusual characters that populate the open mic nights, Laura starts to blossom and Shane seems oddly at home. Soon, following his mother's lead and with the help of YouTube and a couple of new-found mentors at the club, Shane picks up Laura's guitar and begins to discover musical gifts of his own. As family pressures rise Laura finds herself pulled between the worlds of responsibility and creative joy. Ultimately, her first brave steps prove to be the catalyst for changing not only her life, but Shane's, in complex and unpredictable ways. FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE

Druid Peak
"On the ragged edge of the world I'll roam, and the home of the wolf shall be my home." --Robert Service, The Nostomaniac Druid Peak is a coming of age story about a troubled teenage boy who finds a home tracking wolves in the wild lands of the Wyoming. Sixteen year-old Owen is a bully with a mean streak. Growing up in coal country West Virginia, he struggles against the claustrophobia of small town life, lashing out against school and family. But when his actions lead to the death of a friend, he is sent to live with his estranged father, Everett, a biologist on Yellowstone's wolf reintroduction program. At first, Owen wants no part of this new life. Then he comes face to face with a wolf. The creature's deep, penetrating gaze startles him, stirring something long dead inside his own self. Sensing signs of change, Everett encourages Owen to collect some basic data about the wolf he saw and its family pack. Owen's small assignment grows into a passion and his own life becomes tied to the Druid Peak pack and their struggle for survival. Shot on location in West Virginia, Wyoming, Montana and Utah, the film stars Andrew Wilson (Rushmore, The Royal Tennenbaums), Spencer Treat Clark (Mystic River, Gladiator) and Rachel Korine (Spring Breakers, Septien). A coming of age story with a conservation twist, Druid Peak is a film about the human soul's need for wild things, and the challenges of holding onto them. FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE

A document of this artist's courageous and sometimes darkly humorous response to a death sentence, a diagnosis of ALS.  The film traces his life, his career, and his adaptations, switching from painting from his right hand to his left, and then to both hands held at his waist as the degenerative condition progresses.  Adversity only makes him more determined to paint, and paint he does: more than 100 portraits in a four month span.  We first encounter Imber in his studio for the first time painting with his left hand while he and his partner, painter Jill Hoy, analyze Jon's self-portrait and talk about the anxiety to come.  The painting becomes an unsettling metaphor of his psychological journey living into his dying through his art.

The Newburgh Sting
FBI undercover footage tells the story of the Newburgh Four and the U.S. government’s practice of entrapping Muslims and selling their arrests to the public as anti-terror victories.

Told with a shocking, thriller style, four poor African-Americans are lured by an FBI informant into a wild plot to bomb a synagogue.  Their arrests were publicized as a great success, the men now serve 25 years in prison.  Yet the entire scheme was manufactured by the government, a reality which casts our domestic war on terror in a deeply unsettling, new light.

For the Love of Dogs - (Short Before Wicker Kittens)
Meet Cory: a brilliant and talented 11 year-old boy with an immeasurable wealth of knowledge and passion for all things dog. But Cory can barely hold a conversation with another person.  Cory was diagnosed with AspergerÍs Syndrome at four years old.  AspergerÍs Syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication; appropriate social interactions are further confounded by restrictive and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests.  This film dives into his world and depicts how it feels and looks like from the perspective of a child on the autism spectrum.  An inspiring, heart-warming story told through the eyes of Cory, his parents, therapists, and of course, his dogs. Follow Cory's journey from his visits to the local PetSmart, to the National Dog Show, and the 'Super Bowl' of all dog shows, The Westminster.  At these dog shows Cory faces one of the most difficult challenges for someone with AspergerÍs -- extreme sensory bombardment of sights and sounds. Dog Shows, traditionally held in convention centers, create a catastrophic noise blending thousands of barks, speaker announcements and conversations together.  Cory finds a way to deal with this obstacle and becomes embraced by this quirky, outlying society of ñdog people,î where his knowledge and interests are accepted and valued. Witness how a boy's passion for dogs has opened up his communication, allowing him to connect with the world around him. Soundtrack by the award wining band M83.

The Winding Stream
The Winding Stream tells the story of the American roots music dynasty, the Carters and the Cashes.  Starting with the Original Carter Family, the film traces the ebb and flow of their influence, the transformation of that act into the Carter Sisters, June CarterÍs marital alliance with legend Johnny Cash, and the efforts of present-day family to keep this long musical legacy alive. The Carters didnÍt just play the music of the hill country. They helped invent it.  A.P. was both composer and song collector, arranging snippets of ancient, musty melodies into commercial American popular music.  Maybelle took the then-underutilized guitar and made it into the cornerstone of country instrumentation, in no small part by developing innovative ways of playing it that are now commonplace. And Sara became the first well-known womanÍs voice in country music, stamping it with the eerie Gothic quality we find in so much of that genreÍs canon now. The stream these three created has turned into a rushing river and has moved through several generations of musicians. Arguably, there would be no Folk Revival of the ï60s without them, no country-rock bands of the 70s, and no alt-country hipsters of our present era. Will the Circle Be Unbroken?  Keep on the Sunny Side. Worried Man Blues.  Are You Lonesome Tonight?  These are just some of the hundreds of songs the Original Carter Family presented to the world. ItÍs hard to overstate their influence on American music.

To Hear the Music
Charles Brenton Fisk worked with Robert Oppenheimer as an 18-yr-old whiz kid on the Manhattan Project, building a detonator for the A-bomb, before turning from the physics of destruction to music, his first love, and building tracker action pipe organs out of Gloucester Massachusetts. He died in 1983, but his uniquely collaborative shop continues to build ñThe King of Instrumentsî in much the same way it was built in the time of Bach.To Hear The Music, a independent hour-long documentary, follows the development of a single pipe organ, CB FiskÍs Opus 139, from initial design meetings (with HarvardÍs late beloved Rev. Peter J. Gomes), through every aspect of building and testing, to a celebratory Easter inaugural in Memorial Church, Harvard University, FiskÍs Alma mater.  But the documentary also speaks about much more than mere process.  It also addresses the creation of a product built to last in todayÍs world of disposability.  It tells the story of a model workplace, where every craftsmanÍs voice is heard.  It explores the Organ Wars of the early 20th century, that pitted electro-pneumatic advocates against the pure mechanical tracker connection between the fingerÍs touch and the speech of the pipe. It examines the perfect marriage of craft and art that the man Fisk valued above all else.  And then, not least of all, there is the music itself, which provides glorious accompaniment as we observe a sum of parts coming to life in To Hear The Music.

But when she discovers this Mystery Man has a Mystery Wife, she dumps him at the curbside check-in. She ends up crying on the shoulder of childhood friend Josh Shiffman (Shane McRae), who is flying home for the same wedding. Emotionally drained, Molly passes out in Josh's arms just as he gets a phone call from his parents. Josh learns that his father is dying and his only regret is that he will not get to meet the woman who will one day become his son's wife. Desperate to fulfill his dad's final wish, Josh claims that his dad has already met that woman, close childhood and family friend: Molly Mahoney. When Josh sheepishly confesses his ruse in mid-flight Molly is furious, making him promise to right the wrong the moment they land. Only when they arrive - it's too late! Word has leaked out and they are swarmed at the airport by BOTH FAMILIES with well wishes and congratulatory banners. Josh convinces Molly to play fiancé by using a deadly combination, her Catholic guilt and his Playboy charm. But as they plan their phony wedding, the two of them start to fall in love for real. This turns their dating lives, and family's interactions hilariously upside down tugging on every heartstring in the process.

MARMATO
Colombia is at the center of the new global gold rush and Marmato, a mining town with over 500 years of history, is the new frontier. In its mountain there are over $20 Billion in gold, but its 8,000 inhabitants are at risk of being displaced by an open-pit mining project planned by a Canadian mining company. Living on this mountain of gold is both a blessing and a curse. MARMATO is the story of how the townspeople cope with a disturbing prophesy of change and takeover delivered by the company's mining prospector: 'You can believe in God all you want, but I don't think he's got too much to say about this mountain getting leveled.'Filmed over the course of 5 1/2 years, MARMATO is a canvas of magic realism and the confrontation with globalized mining.

Grace.
Gracie knows hangovers. She's intimately acquainted with them. But this one? Why did she wake up, half-dressed, on a Florida beach, 1100 miles from home? And this time her father - who also knows about the tragedy of addiction from his struggles with Gracie's mom - isn't going to clean things up. Suspicious and distrustful of everyone, including a cafe owner with a troubled history of her own, Gracie prefers the relief of alcohol - which had always worked for her. When she's arrested for public drunkenness and attacking a police officer, Gracie is given a choice: six months in jail or 90 meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous in 90 days, and she has to do it in the small town she's landed in. She's not used to strangers caring about her, but perhaps the power of community can help her sidestep the landmines lining her path to sobriety - especially the ones she's laid herself. Rooted in powerful performances by Annika Marks ("The Sessions") and Sharon Lawrence ("NYPD Blue"), "GRACE." compassionately looks at the disease of addiction through a young woman inching towards redemption.

The Perfect 46
Geneticist Jesse Darden creates a website that pairs individuals with their ideal genetic partner for children.

The Perfect 46 explores three interwoven stories about Jesse Darden, the CEO of The Perfect 46: the height of his company, his failing marriage, and the aftermath of both. 

The Perfect 46 strives to be as scientifically accurate as possible. With the collaboration of scientific consultants, our script has been crafted to demonstrate a respect for science.

Many science fiction films (and specifically films about genetics) fail to fully explore the genre. Some begin with an interesting idea that devolves into an excuse for mindless action sequences. Some feature evil clones. Fake computer UI's.

These films rarely pose interesting questions about science; they reduce science to a colorful backdrop for conventional plot formulas. The Perfect 46 hopes to inspire debates about science and our world, specifically the "what ifs?" of personal genetic testing, set in the very near future. FILMMAKERS IN ATTENDANCE

The God Question
A startling breakthrough at MIT produces the first super-intelligent computer capable of thinking independently. However, when it shuts down hundreds of websites it finds offensive, federal regulators quickly padlock the MIT lab in order to study it. Stephen Kendrick, who runs a supercomputer at University of Massachusetts in Amherst, taught at MIT previously and was one of the key code writers for the project. Hearing this, a Yale philosopher, Jane Hurst, suggests this: Feed the computer every book, news article, research paper - essentially all human knowledge - then ask it the ultimate question. Is there evidence for God, for a spiritual framework to life? Kendrick tells her the question was one of the first the MIT team planned to ask - until the federal ban was imposed. However, Kendrick has a copy of the MIT software and a computer capable of running it. He decides to secretly defy the federal ban and ask the question, aided by a colleague, Alan Moss. They make plans to try on the weekends, when they can work undetected.There is an obstacle, though: The computer itself. Each time they load the MIT software and ask the question, the computer eventually shuts itself down, destroying its memory and leaving no trace of what it was thinking, no matter what they do to get around it. When the FBI begins to question Kendrick, Moss loses his courage and drops out. However, Jane Hurst joins Kendrick for one final attempt to get the answer. FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE

Sins Of Our Youth
“Sins of Our Youth” is the story of four teenagers who accidentally murder a younger boy while shooting off assault weapons recreationally and the perilous decisions they make in the wake of the murder.
 
In a moment of desperation, paranoia, and fear that they’re lives are over, the four teenagers struggle to find a way out.  They drunkenly construct a plan reminiscent of a video-game plot. While the plan never comes into fruition, it is the catalyst for deep confusion which leads to a gruesome conclusion in this modern-day Greek tragedy.
 
“Sins of Our Youth” is a cautionary tale that speaks about a generation desensitized by an oversaturation of violence in the mainstream and the proliferation of firearms in America. 

Cast: Lucas Till, Joel Courtney, Mitchel Musso, Bridger Zadina, Ally Sheedy, Dani Knights

Blackbird
Young ballad singer, Ruadhan, despairs as the fabric of his Scottish hometown erodes. Around him Portaran's fading glory is there for all to see. There are no fish in the sea, no jobs and the young generation are leaving for the cities. The passing of town matriarch, Isobel, shakes Ruadhan to the core. Another character gone, another voice lost. Portaran's soul is slipping away and neither Alec, the town bard, or mistress-of-the-ceilidh Lorna, have the stomach to fight the change. Intent on saving Portaran, Ruadhan finds not even his best friend, Calum, is interested in joining his campaign. Calum has invested in an old car he plans to fix up and head for Spain in. As other youngsters abandon Portaran and incomers arrive with plans to remodel the town for tourists, Ruadhan becomes isolated. The return of childhood sweetheart, Amy, sparks Ruadhan's determination to stay and his struggle to keep the past alive. When Alec takes off to a retirement home in mysterious circumstances, Ruadhan must act quickly to save him and protect the town he loves. As the tempo rises and his battle begins to spiral out of control, it is Ruadhan himself who needs saving.Haunted by the songs and traditions of the past, Blackbird is a story of loss all too familiar across Scotland. Featuring legendary Scottish performers Norman Maclean and Sheila Stewart, alongside up and coming talent, Blackbird brings Scottish stars of past and future to the big screen.

Desert Runners
Imagine you have been dropped off in the middle of one of the largest, driest deserts in the World. Over the next six days you will have to run, walk or crawl 155 miles through incessant heat, across hard-packed gravel, over sand dunes and sharp rocky cliffs. You must do this carrying everything you need to survive„clothes, food, medical supplies, sleep gear„ in a 20-pound pack on your back.Now imagine doing this not just once, but four times in one year, through the four most treacherous deserts in the world: the Atacama Desert in Chile, the Gobi Desert in China, the Sahara in Egyptƒ and then the final stage, through the most inhospitable landscape on Earth, Antarctica.Last year, a famous professional athlete became the first person to successfully complete the '4 Desert Series Grand Slam' (all four races in the same year). But now, the brave competitors you will meet are not professional athletes at all„ theyÍre ordinary people who have decided for a variety of personal reasons to take on this extreme physical challenge. DESERT RUNNERS is an intimate, character-driven story which chronicles the year-long journey of these unique competitors, revealing the mindset necessary for human beings to succeed at ñimpossibleî goals. Not everyone will finish, but all will push on through many obstacles-- both expected and unexpected, external and internal-- embracing joy, pain, and the inherent lessons. Ultimately, they will celebrate the emotional victory of the crossing the finish line, forever changed from the inside out.  A BRINGING SCIENCE TO THE SCREEN EVENT

Art and Craft
Mark Landis has been called one of the most prolific art forgers in US history. His impressive body of work spans thirty years, covering a wide range of painting styles and periods that includes 15th Century Icons, Picasso, and even Walt Disney. And while the copies could fetch impressive sums on the open market, Landis isn’t in it for money. Posing as a philanthropic donor, a grieving executor of a family member’s will, and most recently as a Jesuit priest, Landis has given away hundreds of works over the years to a staggering list of institutions across the United States. But after duping Matthew Leininger, a tenacious registrar who ultimately discovers the decades-long ruse and sets out to expose his philanthropic escapades to the art world, Landis must confront his own legacy and a chorus of museum professionals clamoring for him to stop.

ART AND CRAFT starts out as a cat-and-mouse art caper, rooted in questions of authorship and authenticity—but what emerges is an intimate story of obsession and the universal need for community, appreciation, and purpose.

Salmon Deadly Sins - (Short Before Loveless Zoritsa)
Five thousand salmon colored index cards, the seven deadly sins, bizarre anagrams and a host of serendipitous occurrences have mingled in the artist's imagination and emerged on paper as Salmon Deadly Sins. With music by Leftover Salmon, this seven minute flip book style film is a moving drawing; each frame was created individually, by hand, on a 3X5 inch index card. Artist Steven Vander Meer creates his drawings with inspiration derived from words. These include the titles of the film's seven chapters: envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth and wrath. Each chapter also has an anagram of Salmon Deadly Sins, to inspire further creativity in the drawings. Self portraits are prevalent in the artist's work, and remind us that creativity comes from within.

Fight Church
Can you love your neighbor while kneeing him in the face? That's the pivotal question asked by a subject in FIGHT CHURCH and is the crux of this provocative new documentary from Daniel Junge and Bryan Storkel. Pastor Paul Burress runs Victory Training out of his church in Rochester, New York. His church is one of many around the country adopting fight ministries as part of their mission.  Not only does Burress use fighting as an evangelical tool with men and boys, but he, like many in this new movement, believes todayÍs Christian needs more of a warrior ethos which can be honed through mixed martial arts.Burress has a dark past and a history of unsanctioned fighting in which he's suffered ten concussions. With the rise of MMAÍs popularity, heÍs tempted to get back into the ring himself, in spite of his doctor's warnings. Complicating matters is that New York is only one of two states in the nation where MMA is illegal, the legislative battle for which Paul and others in the religious community are fighting.Alongside, Pastor BurressÍs complex story, FIGHT CHURCH features several other pastors who are also fighters. Through their inter-twined narratives, culminating in several riveting fights, FIGHT CHURCH seeks to discuss the compatibility of Christianity and mixed martial arts and, moreover, the confluence of religion and violence in our culture.  Through sympathetic subjects on both sides of this debate, the film asks provocative questions about sports, masculinity, free will and morality.

Druid Peak
"On the ragged edge of the world I'll roam, and the home of the wolf shall be my home." --Robert Service, The Nostomaniac Druid Peak is a coming of age story about a troubled teenage boy who finds a home tracking wolves in the wild lands of the Wyoming. Sixteen year-old Owen is a bully with a mean streak. Growing up in coal country West Virginia, he struggles against the claustrophobia of small town life, lashing out against school and family. But when his actions lead to the death of a friend, he is sent to live with his estranged father, Everett, a biologist on Yellowstone's wolf reintroduction program. At first, Owen wants no part of this new life. Then he comes face to face with a wolf. The creature's deep, penetrating gaze startles him, stirring something long dead inside his own self. Sensing signs of change, Everett encourages Owen to collect some basic data about the wolf he saw and its family pack. Owen's small assignment grows into a passion and his own life becomes tied to the Druid Peak pack and their struggle for survival. Shot on location in West Virginia, Wyoming, Montana and Utah, the film stars Andrew Wilson (Rushmore, The Royal Tennenbaums), Spencer Treat Clark (Mystic River, Gladiator) and Rachel Korine (Spring Breakers, Septien). A coming of age story with a conservation twist, Druid Peak is a film about the human soul's need for wild things, and the challenges of holding onto them.

Life Inside Out
Life Inside Out tells the story of Laura, the mother of three teenage boys, and her youngest son Shane, the family misfit and a disappointment to his father. When we first meet Laura, she is half-heartedly hosting a scrap booking party for her sister Lydia's new multi-level marketing business. When she stumbles upon her long forgotten guitar, a gift from her mother and the former passion of her youthful life, she is taken under its spell and soon rediscovers her love for songwriting. Shane, sullen, ear buds perpetually in his ears, has cut himself off from the activities that his father and brothers enjoy. When Laura impulsively decides to sing at her first open-mic night, she takes Shane along for the ride; an act of both pity and motherly instinct. Her first performance is a borderline disaster but with Shane's encouragement, she eventually tries again. Despite her rocky entry into the late night melange of musicians and unusual characters that populate the open mic nights, Laura starts to blossom and Shane seems oddly at home. Soon, following his mother's lead and with the help of YouTube and a couple of new-found mentors at the club, Shane picks up Laura's guitar and begins to discover musical gifts of his own. As family pressures rise Laura finds herself pulled between the worlds of responsibility and creative joy. Ultimately, her first brave steps prove to be the catalyst for changing not only her life, but Shane's, in complex and unpredictable ways. FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE
