Event description

Description

Life in Stride, directed by Patrick Foust, USA, (18 minutes)
Jake, a young man with autism, has become a champion in therapeutic horseback riding. Jake’s mother Joanne has been by his side throughout his riding career, helping her son stay calm on his horse. Jake is put to the test, as he enters his first non-therapeutic riding competition, where the circumstances are outside Jake and Joanne’s control.

When I Plant A Tree (15 minutes)
Cuando Planto Un Árbol (When I Plant A Tree), is a portrait of environmental change centering around an Ecuadorian natural sciences teacher Moncho. The film depicts how Moncho's family went from being loggers to environmental stewards, focusing on issues of deforestation and education.

Easton High Student Showcase, Instructor Garnette Hines, Interactive Media Production, Career and Technology Department, Easton High School, Various filmmakers (35 minutes)

The Ballad of Holland Island House, directed by Lynn Tomlinson, USA, (4 minutes)
The Ballad of Holland Island House is a short animation made with an innovative clay-painting technique in which a thin layer of oil-based clay comes to vibrant life frame by frame. Animator Lynn Tomlinson tells the true story of the last house on a sinking island in the Chesapeake Bay. Told from the house's point of view, this film is a soulful and haunting view of the impact of sea-level rise.

Pickle, directed by Amy Nicholson, USA, (15 minutes)
Let us reflect on the life of Pickle, the fish that could not swim. Although with several other unusual pets, he was lovingly cared for by couple that kept him propped up in a sponge. Pickle is proof of man’s capacity to care for all creatures throughout their sometimes, protracted existence, until their occasionally untimely demise.

Winter Meditations, directed by Zoya Baker, USA, (3 minutes)
Winter Meditations is an observational portrait of three distinct ecosystems in winter. From forest, to beach, to hills, we study ants and moss and as well as macroscopic views of oceans and mountains. Winter Meditations invites us to reflect on our relationship to the natural world and to sit with beings who reside near the peripheries of our attention.
