* chocolate passion brownies with softly whipped cream (and other delights)
prepared by Haley House's new chef, DAVID ANDREWS.
The films to be screened are:
OXTAILS - Xavier subtly avoids eating his girlfriend's meals out of fear that she might be adding "roots" or black magic to her recipes. At the local bar, his commitment-phobic friends reinforce his anxieties while others provide rational alternatives. Is "roots" alive and well or is Xavier overreacting? OXTAILS redefines the old adage: the way to a man's heart is through his stomach.
QUINCY AND ALTHEA - are two married, bickering 60+ year old Hurricane Katrina evacuees, who have returned to their flood ravaged New Orleans home. Despite the seemingly overwhelming task of reconstruction that lies ahead, the last think on either of their minds is rebuilding. All Quincy and Althea want is a divorce.
MAYBE - When you're looking for love, be careful what you ask for. Self-proclaimed, pathological heart breaker Indira Allai has once again ended a failed relationship. Struggling to determine the reasons why this one ended, she begins to dream about two different versions of her ex. Indira finds comic relief by submerging herself in this bizarre fantasy and recognizing that no man and no relationship is perfect.
"YOUR DAUGHTER's FIRST DATE" and "MAN OH MAN" produced by Boston indi-filmmaker Jibril Haynes.
