On Wednesday. June 27, NewFilmmakers gets ready for Summer.
Our 6:00 PM Documentary Series presents Ana Nogueira ROADMAP TO APARTHEID (2011, 95 minutes). Ana Nogueira is a white South African and Eron Davidson a Jewish Israeli. Drawing on their first-hand knowledge of the issues, the producers take a close look at the apartheid comparison often used to describe the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Our 8:00 PM Short Film Program presents four new films. In Tina Salmassi TUMBLING (2011, 13 minutes) an ordinary picnic turns unforgettable after a young boy witnesses an act of betrayal by his mother. Anna Nuse WHAT COMES BETWEEN FEAR AND SEX (2011, 14 minutes) chronicles the emotional turbulence of a teenage couple who leave the prom and enter a wilderness of confusion from which they may never return. In Joseph Lyons SALVAGING (2011, 15 minutes) a down on his luck man and his fifteen year-old step-son navigate the twists and turns of their troubled relationship while pushing a junkyard-bound car through equally difficult city streets. Logan Sandler ALL IT WILL EVER BE (2011, 18 minutes) is an intensely personal meditation on the modern romantic disconnect present in today's society.
Our 9:45 PM Feature Presentation is Ann Oren INCONTACT (2012, 84 minutes). InContact examines intimacy in our universal state of voyeurism, evoking an age of lost romance and melodrama. A love triangle unfolds through an online platform called “InContact”, which is a hybrid of facebook and reality TV, giving users a constant live video feed from their friends' computers. Every user is both a viewer and a performer. This perspective helps punctuate the characters’ tendency to act in order to be seen by others and explores levels of spectatorship and exhibitionism in our everyday life, through this technology.
