"What about the relationship between sweetness and power?"

Sarah Jane Lapp's personal essay film probes the shadows of sugar and labor, love and power. Oscillating between interviews with striking Domino Sugar workers, her father, and her sweethearts, Lapp documents her own process of making and disseminating a thousand sugar packets, most of which she gave as  gifts to workers at the Domino Sugar Refinery during their twenty-month strike in the early 2000's.

Third Shift
(Anthony Simon, United States, 2013, 20 min)

Two former Domino Sugar workers that remain blocks away from the now closed refinery reflect on their past experiences as employees and their future as residents in a rapidly changing neighborhood.


Skyjelly is a psycho-blues-noise trip from deep in the desert.

Fan review:

"The 6 Is Silent" would probably be your favorite psychedelic garage rock track of the moment if you only cared to listen!!! Not religiously psychedelic, not devoutly garage rock. Willing to be WEIRD, and take the train just a smidge off the rails (just to give the passengers a little bit of that kick in the gut that they've been missing). The vocals are lost to the psychedelia, but the melody remains and is a sweet center to this strange ragged stomper that I think I'm really into. That's it, I'm a SKYJELLY fan.
