In this 1920s-inspired "silent movie", Loretta catches her husband cheating with another woman and decides to give him the "silent treatment". The question is, will this indiscretion enhance or destroy their love? Features Emyatzy Corinealdi (MIDDLE OF NOWHERE, AKIRA'S HIP-HOP SHOP).

African American architect, author, and well-known professor of countless New York interior design students, Robert A. King, is an obsessed man when it comes to gargoyles, 'grotesques,' and other elements of building sculpture. These details tend to be ignored by New Yorkers and others who walk the streets of New York City. King, a lifelong Harlem resident loves to find and photograph these 'faces in stone' and had developed a secret and comic relationship with them which the film explores.
Mr. King is the subject of a March 8, 2013 New York Times story: http://nyti.ms/WeYZDf
JAKE'S WAKE (USA, 2012; 60 min.) Directed by Alonzo Crawford. Screenplay by Doreen Mitchum (Pacific NW filmmaker/author), who will be present for a Filmmaker Talkback. Seattle premiere.
Jake's Wake is about a musician (blues man) who is dead but doesn't know it. He must help settle some unsolved issues among the women he leaves behind: his mother, grandmother, sister, ex-wife, daughter and girlfriend. Toby, mystical spirit-man and the only one who can see and hear him, is his musical mentor and the conduit for Jake to communicate with the living.
