Alpha Kings

Enrique Pedráza-Botero & Faye Tsakas | US | 15 mins

From a rented mansion in suburban Texas, a group of young men sell a hyperbolic, alpha-male version of themselves on the internet.

Balloon Boy

Arlin Golden & Brian Gersten | US | 17 mins

On October 15, 2009, America watched with rapt attention a large balloon float through the skies of Colorado on live TV.

Holy Cowboys

Varun Chopra | India, US | 24 mins

In small-town India, where cows are considered sacred, a teenaged boy and his group of friends set off on a quest to become saviors of the holy cow only to be caught in the grip of right wing radicalism.

Liturgy of Anti-Tank ObstaclesI

Dmytro Sukholytkyy-Sobchuk | US, Ukraine | 12 mins

In western Ukraine, sculptors who used to make religious statues are retraining for different skills. They now build anti-tank obstacles to help fend off the Russian invasion.

The Pedestrian

Nora DeLigter & Claire Read | US | 19 mins

A pedestrian sets off on a nine-day walk from Brooklyn to Montauk. As he makes his way, a chorus of Long island characters question his motives: is it a practice or a calling? Is he getting lost or finding himself?


Angélica García

With roots in El Monte, California, and Richmond, Virginia, Angélica García’s sound formed as an amalgamation of a bicoastal Southern experience. As García moved locations, her songs followed suit, sometimes switching from noise pop to the textured polyrhythms of Latin America and vocal production inspired by ambient electronica. She has previously been featured on NPR’s Tiny Desk, NY Times year-end lists, and on Barack Obama’s annual best-of music list for her song "Jícama".

Her most recent EP, 2021’s Echo Eléctrico, is a testament to her Salvadoran-Mexican American heritage and an expression of her vocal study of Alternative Rock, Pop, & Ranchera styles. A completely a cappella album, Echo Eléctrico especially showcases the carefully constructed world of Angélica’s vocal production style.

The upcoming iteration of García's work brings her to Brooklyn, NY. After working closely with Carlos Arévalo (Chicano Batman) on her forthcoming album, to be released on Partisan Records, she eagerly experiments with closing the divide between her many identities. She released recent single "Y Grito" in conjunction with a feature in Apple’s annual keynote, followed by a feature in Apple TV's launch of their Major League Soccer partnership. The future of her storytelling lies in harnessing the power of tradition and alchemizing it into the present, singing about the intersection of spirit and body.

About the organizer

Organized by
Rooftop Films

At Rooftop Films we believe film can be so much more than just watching a movie, so we curate unique events that combine great music, quality film, and some of the most beautiful locations that New York has to offer. By thinking beyond the screen, we help to bring communities together and change the way that film, music, art, and ideas interact with the city around us.

Rooftop Films’ mission is to engage and inspire diverse communities by showing movies in outdoor locations, supporting the production of new independent films, helping local organizations to produce screenings and events, and renting equipment at low-cost to artists and nonprofits. Rooftop Films is more than a film festival. We are a community. We are a collective collaboration between filmmakers and festivals; between audience members and artists; between venues and neighborhoods. Our goal is to nurture a vibrant independent filmmaking and film-going community not only by exhibiting the work of emerging filmmakers, but also by providing essential support systems for those who otherwise have none.
