Jackie, USA, 2011, 17 min (World Premiere)

A friendly dinner takes a wrong turn in this story of an Ivy Leaguer and her birth-mother who find out that their similarities are disturbingly strong and first impressions can never be undone. Having grown up in East New York's volatile child care system, Jackie Isley is armed with street and book-smarts upon meeting 'Ronnie' for the first time. Looking more like her sister, Jackie soon learns that not only is she the product of a teenage pregnancy, but also that her mother is out for blood... Some mature language, themes, and content.

Tobacco Burn, USA, 2013, 17 min (World Premiere)

Based on an oral history from the W.P.A. Writers, Tobacco Burn is a story set thirty-five years before the Civil War at the height of American slavery. Our story follows a slave community on a Kentucky tobacco farm as they struggle with the arrival of a brutal overseer. When two of the enslaved weigh the complexities of killing the man, each develop a different understanding towards violence, acting on which could cost all of them their lives. Some mature language, themes, and content.

Man in the Silo, USA, 2012, 55 min (World Premiere)

MARCUS WELLS (Ernie Hudson), a successful African-American businessman, awakes to find himself in a dilapidated grain silo. He walks outside to find a seemingly deserted farmhouse, which triggers a flood of haunting memories.

His wife, EMILY, insisted they move to her childhood home to care for her ailing grandmother, SARAH. However, this new environment was anything but welcoming for Marcus and their son CARL. Sarah never approved of her granddaughter marrying a black man, and as a result a bitter rivalry festered between her and Marcus. The tension in the household erupts in the form of a shouting match with the married couple, and ends in a tragic car accident leaving Emily and their son Carl dead. As a result of Marcus' promise to his wife on her deathbed, he now feels obligated to care for the one person who despises him, Sarah, now wheel-chair bound and has lost the ability to speak.

Now forced to spend more time with Sarah, Marcus begins to imagine all of her incidental moans are actually purposeful forms of communication, beckoning her late husband to come back from the dead to kill him. CHARLIE, Sarah's late husband, died in a grain silo accident long ago, and shared her hostility and racism toward the 'farm help.'

Marcus' mental stability begins to fray, and he starts believing that Charlie is in fact coming back from the dead to kill him. Marcus battles with himself to either take his own life or confront his increasingly paranoid delusions. Some mature content.
