GIBFF 2018 Saturday 3PM - LIVING AND LOVING WHILE BLACK- Short Film Showcase
The Anthem of Our Souls
The Anthem of Our Souls is a film which combines the creative process of a community collaborative mural, with stories depicting the issues on the hearts of the collaborators.
The stories arise from individual experiences, community concerns and reflections on cultural history. As the film winds through the mural's creation, many of the artists and contributors involved lead us through individual vignettes, which provide a closer look into the profoundly personal concerns and experiences which inspired the art. Instead of ""Talking Head"" interviews, the storytellers use poetry, song, drama and rap to communicate the film's points of view.
A rousing love story set against a backwoods honky tonk blues performance. Starring Bryan Earl and Ashley John as Louis and Nora. We follow a simple boy meets girl story with intense intercut passionate scenes.
The Dress of Myriam
In a quiet house, an old couple share a life in silence.
An Award Winning Drama about an Angel's descent from Heaven to Brooklyn looking too clear the air, bridging a Gap fining common ground addressing an important key of life between Law Enforcement and Minorities
A vivid look at modern life where the city, nature and obligations come to a crossroads.
Bastião, son of a slave, and Inácio , the future heir to a sugar mill, are friends until their social conditions separate them. A love triangle between the two and Elza twenty years later culminates in a struggle for survival.
An elderly narrator revisits her youth, telling the story of her sister Mable, a poor farm girl who reads classic literature to their abusive father, struggling mother, and family of seven brothers and sisters, helping to forge a new existence for them for generations to come. An experimental solo-screendance short, Generation is shaped by a script consisting entirely of two nearly identical voice-over monologues, echoing each other at various points and driving and chasing the film's visual images.
