Camden 2019 Shorts: Shoulder Season, Enforcement Hours, The Last Miller, 6 Degrees of Freedom, Coby and Stephen Are In Love, and In The Wake
wickedly wonderful film about a dodgeball program at a YMCA in Maine. Wild crazy and just damn fun- just see it. One of my favorites of the film festival
Thought provoking and emotionally moving film about a California Hotline that people can call when either they see ICE raids or are caught up in one in order to get help. Made up entirely of recorded conversations it reveals the gamut of people who call the line with the results that we feel for the people involved. I was moved by the film to actually try and do something to help and when the film was done I looked into the sort of services that are available on this side of the country. Worth a look.
THE LAST MILLER
Portrait of one of the last stone millers in Columbia and the complications that have hit his profession. A stunningly beautiful film that reveals the life of a man who is practicing an all but lost art that no one wants to continue. Recommended
SIX DEGREES OF FREEDOM
A stunning to look at portrait of a swimmer.This needs to be seen on the big screen where the images can over whelm you.
COBY AND STEPHEN ARE IN LOVE
Biography of two senior performers and their life. This is a half an hour with two nice people.
IN THE WAKE
A look at the women who still use hand looms to make cloth. Its a visually beautiful take on a dying art.
