Description

BURNING CANE
Phillip Youmans (Louisiana indie drama)

November 1 through 7 @ 7:00 pm nightly
[TRAILER]


Set among the cane fields of rural Louisiana, BURNING CANE follows a deeply religious, God fearing mother struggling to reconcile her tightly-held convictions of faith with the love she has for her troubled, self-destructive son while also witnessing her dejected pastor’s decline. The intimate drama captures the complexity and complacency of family life and religion in rural Louisiana. With his spare, almost documentary filmmaking style, Phillip Youmans, who wrote, directed, photographed and co-edited BURNING CANE as his debut feature film, captures the daily lives of the characters and the natural beauty of the town of Laurel Valley and manages to humanize the flawed characters. BURNING CANE is the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival Founders Award Winner for Best Narrative Feature, Best Actor - Wendell Pierce, and Best Cinematography.

Zeitgeist screened Phillip Youmans' short film IVORY along with a program of shorts from fellow NOCCA students that Youmans curated his senior year.
