I Am Sarah Maple
USA, 2012, 13 minutes
Director: Ariel Fisher, Tyler Gurd
After being named winner of the '4 New Sensations' prize presented by the Saatchi Gallery, Sarah Maple's career as a young, feminist artist skyrocketed. However, her unabashed style incorporating feminist themes with her Muslim faith stirred up controversy that threatened her freedom as an artist as well as her safety. I Am Sarah Maple follows Sarah as she preps for her first solo show since the 'incident' and showcases her new-found ways to comment on feminism, religion and subvert societal norms with her infectious personality and not-so-G-rated humor.

USA, 2013, 27 minutes
Director: Kristian Berg
Gendron Jensen draws bones; detailed, precise, wondrous images of bones. Kicked out of a monastery in his 20's, Jensen honed his craft for 17 years as a semi-hermit on a rented farm in northern Minnesota before leaving for new life and love in the mountains of New Mexico. Called a 'forest eccentric', a technical virtuoso and a romantic visionary, Jensen conjures art from nature and his meticulously rendered, monumental drawings compel us to look beyond the ordinary to a deeper, spiritual realm.
