Event description

Description

It's Session #2 of the Screaming Ostrich film festival, our PG session & please join us in welcoming our special guest, state Senator William Brownsberger, as a companion speaker to a great documentary, "The Battle for Ranked Choice Voting." Senator Brownsberger will address the audience on this important issue. We're not asking that you agree, only that you become better informed. Sharing the Program with "The Battle for Ranked Choice Voting" will be:

"To Laugh to Live." Another great, socially relevant documentary, this one from New Zealand but with a strong Boston connection, To Laugh to Live is a frightening tale of one man's cancer ordeal.

"Lost Boy." Worth watching as a great example of Guerrilla Film Making, but also sporting a scene stealing costar, it is through such works that we can actually glimpse not a film but a film maker in the making. At just 15-years old, he is one of the youngest registered screenwriters in the industry.

"Widdershins." The latest from award winning film maker Ben Reingold, Widdershins turns a "What If" tale on its head.

"Outside." An award winning music video touching on themes of gun violence, psychological trauma and racial identity.

"Fade." A great music video, Fade is a quick-cut visual celebration of the power of finding ones voice and using it.

"Weaponized." Our last but not least music video addressing gun violence.

"Class of 84." This is a fun animation about a teenager who is smothered under an overly cautious mom discovering that she's likely to be the next victim of a deadly curse.

"Craving Greatness." This film is described simply as "A day, in a day, in a day in the life of a writer." We can all relate.

"All This Time." A very touching and potentially tear-jerking glimpse into the lives of two elderly women in the Czech Republic. Very subtle LGBT content and with subtitles.

"Micah Makes a Movie." A stellar example of web content and the democratization of the media (while it lasts), Micah Makes a Movie is a mockumentary look at a narcissitic social media star who maybe bites off more than she can chew.

"Beatniks." Created by local legend Mick Cusimano. Mick is often described as "The Professor of Surrealism," while I usually call him "The Bob Dylan of film making," because none of us understand what he's saying but we're all certain that it must be profound. Beatniks has already been an official selection in 18 film festivals, at last count, across three continents. We are proud to be #19.


PLEASE NOTE: All programs are subject to change, and the order for screening almost certainly will. If there's a film you must absolutely see, and for some reason it gets moved to another session, we will gladly swap out your tickets. But, every one of our sessions has so much to offer, we can pretty much guarantee that you'll find something to love in all of them!
