THE LOVING STORY and Featured Short Films
1:00 p.m. - 2:45 p.m. Shorts & Feature Documentary Program

NGUTU (Spain, 2012; 4 min.) Directed by Daniel Valledor and Felipe del Olmo. Seattle premiere.
Ngutu is a newspaper street vendor who hardly sells any copies at all. Resentful, he starts watching the passersby closely in order to make progress in his business.

BREEZEWOOD (USA, 2012; 7 min. 3 sec.) Directed by Jonathan Tazewell. Seattle premiere.
Eight-year-old Frieda Brown has her first encounter with racism while stopping in Breezewood, Pennsylvania, as she and her parents travel from Ohio to Virginia in June of 1968.

THE LOVING STORY (USA, 2012, 77 min.) Directed by Nancy Buirski.
Though often overlooked among the pantheon of civil rights struggles, Mildred and Richard Lovings' quest to live together as husband and wife in the state of Virginia was a pivotal one. A white man and a part-Black, part-Rappahannock woman were in love and did not understand why their marriage was a criminal offense in the eyes of state. Their effort to make this right  to not live in shame or in exile  is universal, metaphorically reminding us of oppressed and exiled people everywhere. The Lovings were banished from their home for their commitment to each other, and they fought long and hard to return to it, to love each other within the bosom of their family.  Never-before-seen footage and photographs of this very private couple reveal who the Lovings really were, and what it was actually like to marry as a mixed-race couple in the Jim Crow South.
