Walls Cannot Keep Us From Flying
Two young Palestinians in the West Bank use skateboarding as a way of breaking free of their situation. Skating frees them and teaching others to skate help others have an outlet for their frustrations.
This is a really sweet film that is moving on many levels Recommended.
A young woman finds a flyer on a telephone pole and it leads her down a tunnel of darkness,
This is a solid retro horror that feels as though it was made a couple decades back. I know that may not sound great for some but for those who love retro horror and miss dial up modems.
Deeply moving of a grandfather telling her granddaughter in Hong Kong about how he escaped Communist China by “swimming” to Hong Kong and the connection to the young woman who has to leave Hong Kong in the wake of the Chinese crack down.
This is a great story, beautifully told and with a kicker ending that had me getting misty
One of my favorite films at Slamdance
A Table Is as Good as Nine Lives
Wonderful memory piece about a family remembering the Sunday get togethers as they cook.
This is a huge ball of love and nostalgia. It’s a look at the best side of family life amplified by the love of food. This is a joyful that is going to have a long life.
Telos or Bust
A look at the people living around paranormal hot spot Mount Shasta and how they view the mountain and the folk lore that has sprung up around the place.
I honestly have no idea of these people are on to something or not, but it’s an interesting look at a community I knew very little about (I had heard of strange things by the mountain)
