LA's SHORT FILM PROGRAM

ALL I SEE IS THE FUTURE An Optometrist opens her first clinic in the under-served area of Staten Island, New York. A newly released felon asks for a job. After some polishing up, they grow the clinic to 20,000 patients but a sudden “people, places and things” incident threatens to destroy all their hopes and dreams.

KWAKU ANANSE is an intensely personal project which draws upon the rich mythology of Ghana. The short film combines semi-autobiographical elements with the tale of Kwaku Ananse, a trickster in West African stories who appears as both spider and man. Ananse teaches us that there are two sides to everything and everyone. The fable of Kwaku Ananse is combined with the story of a young outsider named Nyan Koronhwea attending her estranged father's funeral. At the funeral, she retreats to the woods in search for her father.

LEGEND OF THE MANTAMAJI — When a masked gang known as the New World Knights gather illegal Weapons for an attack on New York City, it’s up to a mystical warrior known as a Mantamaji to stop them. His powers are untested and he’s outgunned, can he survive this first big challenge? Based off the critically acclaimed graphic novel series “Legend of the Mantamaji.”

OLDE E tells the story of a young man and his father. The young man is a rising basketball star in South LA, on the brink of recruitment by the same school that once recruited his now-alcoholic, abusive father. Tensions between the two rise to a nearly devastating level, as the elder man’s regret and anger pushes his son to the breaking point.

PROCLAMATION PUNCTUATION is an enthralling fashion film centered on a fabulously fascinating woman reciting a short soliloquy paying homage to her love of using exclamation points in her missives. Periods are so period, where as an exclamation point livens up a sentence! There is simply nothing worse than a long dragged out sentence ending in an uninspiring dull dot! So when exclamation points are your philosophy on life, one must always keep it on the up beat!
