ZION FLIX II: DILEMMAS FOR PUZZLED PEOPLE
ZION Flix II: Dilemmas for puzzled people
Social dilemmas provide new obstacles for people who must figure a way out and a new life. The puzzle remains to change their diet, grow out of their imaginary friends, or escape a grave.

Eating Alaska
Eating Alaska - Mountain West Premiere
Featurette Shorts Competition - Documentary
U S A (2008) 57 min. (1.33:1) In English
DIR Ellen Frankenstein  CAST Ellen Frankenstein
What happens to a vegetarian who moves to the last frontier? Connecting to where you live and eating locally means not just going to the farmer's market, but living off the land and the sea. It's a serious and humorous quest of an ex-urban vegetarian who moves to Alaska, marries a fisherman and hunter and begins to wonder what the "right" thing to eat is- in a place surrounded by wilderness. The film talks about farmed salmon, toxins getting into wild foods, and the colonization of the indigenous diet. From Alaska Native teens talking about their favorite traditional foods as they make pretzels to women trying to teach the filmmaker to hunt, this wry look at what‚‚s on your plate explores ideas about eating healthy sustainable food from one's own backyard, either urban or wild, versus industrially produced food shipped thousands of miles.

Imaginary Friends
Imaginary Friends - World Premiere
Shorts Competition - Documentary
United Kingdom (2008) 13 min. (1.33:1) In English
DIR Sasha Collington  CAST Alexis de Vivenot, Antonia Whillans, Joshua  Swinney
Flying twin brothers who battled school bullies, a yellow zogo who knew that boys who liked boys were not weirdos, and American Cowboys who helped a girl with both legs in plaster to walk. This is a film about a special kind of friend; a friend who never grows up, who hangs on your every word, who appears just at the very moment that you need them, and who represents all the best aspects of you. This is a film about imaginary friends and why an imaginary friend is a better friend than a real one.

La mort d'Olivier B‚caille
The Death of Olivier B‚caille - Mountain West Premiere
Shorts Competition - Narrative Fiction
France (2008) 22 min. (1.66:1) In French with English subtitles
DIR Thibault Dentel, Laura Gitton  CAST Christophe Sauvion, Sylvain Solustri, Isabelle Tesson, Marienne P‚neau
France, 1919. Olivier B‚caille is in full catalepsy crisis. His body is paralysed, he suffers from hypotension and hypothermia. He cannot move at all but he can still see and hear very well. Unfortunately, his entourage made of his wife, his neighbor and his doctor believes he's dead. Decision is made to bury him... This whimsically dark film is based on a story written by Emile Zola.
