I Am Her
Dir. Sasha Pezenik
USA | 30 mins | Language: English
Out of the limelight, under the streetlight, enter the world of NYC’s transgender underclass. One church opens its doors to provide meals, clothing and sometimes, a little drag show magic.


Beautiful Dreamer
Dir. David Gaddie
USA | 26 mins | Language: English
Facing a terminal disease, a mother uses space travel and relativity to stretch her last two years over the lifetime of her baby daughter, visiting for only one night every seven years. Mother and daughter must negotiate to forgive, to find what is important and to turn the pain of separation into love and a shared life.


Enemies Within
Dir. Sélim Azzazi
France | 28 mins | Language: French with English subtitles
In the 90's, during the algerian civil war, terrorism reaches France. Two men. Two identities. One fight.


Dir. David Fu
USA | 20 mins | Language: English
Vivacious and popular Charlotte Reynolds is found brutally murdered a week before her seventeenth birthday. Her death is the first in a series of brutal murders that begin to plague a small-town community in the spring of 1992. What begins as local tragedy soon spirals into a collective consternation, as the residents escalate into hysteria.

After each film there will be a 2 minute break, during which we invite the audience to complete score cards. The cards go towards the scoring of the films and are sent directly to the filmmakers to provide insight into the audiences response.
