Event

Striking A Chord & NE Shorts - Documentaries
Striking A Chord - 38 minutes
Produced and Directed Susan Cohn Rockefeller As singer-songwriter Nell Bryden and her band travel through Iraq performing for the troops, we learn how music can heal invisible wounds of war. Inspiring performances and moving conversations with troops are inter-cut with conversation with psychiatrist Judith Broder.



NE Shorts - Documentaries:
Tokyo Food Scene  13:53 minutes
Written and directed by Rie Takeuchi
Tokyo Food Scene, filmed in Tokyo, Japan, is a short documentary about the life-like plastic or silicone food models commonly used as window displays in many restaurants in Japan.  They are not only great visual aids for ordering unfamiliar foods, but also entice those who pass by the restaurants.


Esperanza  12:00 minutes
Directed by Tim Guthrie
Executive Produced by John O'Keefe
Head Writer Carol Zuegner
Videographers/Video and Sound Editors - Rachel Belsha, Morgan Braaten, Amy Engle, Peter Freeze, Emily Hanigan, Jen Houston, Rachel Johnson, Gaby Mock, Scott Peak
A mini-documentary primarily filmed and edited by Creighton Students.  The mini-doc follows Pedro Almonte and the work he has done with the community of Cien Fuegos  in the Domincan Republic.


Bye Bye Blatt  6:30 minutes
Directed by Mike Machian
Several people who spent their youth going to or working baseball games at Omaha's Rosenblatt Stadium share their thoughts on the 'Blatt's last season.


Walk in the Clouds  10:30 minutes
Directed by Doug Mcmains
Voice over by Robert Redford
Glacier National Park has enormous water preserves as well as one million acres of undeveloped wilderness. Glacier National Park is not currently designated as 'Wilderness'. All of the beauty and resources of Glacier are at risk as long as the park is not set-aside as 'Wilderness'. The text of the film is intended to drive citizens to promote 'Wilderness Designation' for Glacier National Park.


Irma  12:30 minutes
Directed by Charles Fairbanks
Starring Irma Gonzalez
Irma is an intimate musical portrait of Irma Gonzalez, the former world champion of women's professional wrestling. Filmed in Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl - a notorious district of Mexico City - Irma contradicts everything we have come to expect from stories reported from Mexico. Featuring music written and performed by Ms. Gonzalez, Irma's story surges with love and deceit, masculine strength, feminine charms, and an extraordinary sense of humor.
