2019 LHAAFF 1 - Opening Night

Audiences will have an opportunity to engage with Northwest filmmakers, including Kiana Harris, Jamal Bradley, and Elijah Hasan, and more, in a talk-back following the screenings.

#WeMatter               Sherri, Isaac           03:55                   2017
#WeMatter is a short film that strives to highlight the growing epidemic of police violence against people of color. We hope that by focusing on the human aspect of the issue--the hurt, frustration and often the feelings of hopelessness, the importance of changing a system that allows these actions to flourish, can be thwarted. We hope that our film not only elicits an emotional response and encourages conversations of change, but inspires action.

Dynamite                  Leila Jarman        06:42                      2018
A short, poetic performance art/dance film that investigates gender and masculinity --more specifically the American black male experience-- through embodied inquiry to find spaces where identity exists between and in opposition to social constructs. This film guides us through narrative incorporating movement, spoken word, and chant, as it uncovers truths about race, gender, and success in an ever-changing social landscape.

Me Time                   Iyabo Boyd           09:13                     2019
After a long work week, Deborah is exhausted and needs to relax. One part of her psyche, Sexy Deb, appears and tries to bully her into going out to a bar for a hook-up. Soulful Deb also shows up- she lights some incense and tries to guide her into some self care stroking. Then Scaredy Deb pops in and whines that she just wants to eat oatmeal and watch Gilmore Girls. When they finally rally together to get-it-on solo, Scaredy Deb questions aloud if they've ever truly had an orgasm, undermining each aspect of the Debs and threatening to derail their whole plan. Through laughter and introspection, ME TIME explores women's sexuality, self care, and highlights the richness of our inner lives.
