We share the beauty of our community with them for inspiration; they share their picture of the world through film with us.

This 1987 drama is set in a small Scandinavian town in northern Minnesota. The death of an eccentric old woman stirs this small town’s curiosity of a possible hidden fortune. But as Mary Graving, played by Pamela Reed as a small town reporter, digs deeper for the truth, she uncovers a better understanding of her own place in the community and of the powerful bonds connecting her to those around her. The Hollywood Reporter described it as “a sparkling glimpse into the resilience of the human spirit”. The screenplay was written by Judith Guest (“Ordinary People”) and features outstanding performances by Tacoma native Reed (“Kindergarten Cop”, “The Right Stuff”, and currently in “Parks and Recreation”) Vivica Lindfors, Zelkjo Ivanek (“24”) and Craig T. Nelson (“Parenthood”).

‘Do You Really Want to Know?’ is a documentary about the complex emotional, ethical and psychological issues surrounding the new frontier of predictive genetic testing. The film follows three families who have been confronted with the decision of whether or not to be tested for Huntington’s disease - a degenerative neurological illness that is akin to having ALS, Schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s - and one of the first diseases people could be accurately and conclusively tested for, before the onset of any symptoms. As scientists discover more ways to identify diseases before we know we have them, ‘do you really want to know?’ will be a question more and more of us will face.

The “Afflictions” films shine a light on societal issues impacting the experiences—the suffering and the wellbeing--of the mentally ill, some specific to the Indonesian culture and others with global application. Balinese religious symbology, Dutch colonial occupation and Indonesian historical events play a role in the their stories. At the same time, universal concepts rise to the surface: home placement can be more beneficial than institutional care; urban living impacts disease onset and outcomes; and treatment modalities that integrate psychiatric and outpatient treatment can be the most effective. In the end, it is my hope that the findings clarified and made accessible in “Afflictions” help shape the care and treatment of the mentally ill in Indonesia, in other developing nations and around the world.

Dot Fisher-Smith is a mystical masterful artist, a war resister, an environmental activist, a jailbird. As a great-grandmother, she chained her neck to a log truck to protest salvage logging of old growth forest. Dot’s life illuminates our shared American history: the segregated South, draft protests and LSD in late 60’s San Francisco, finding a spiritual path. “I’ve always thought that by the time she’s 80 she’s going to be completely enlightened,” says a friend. “She’s going to float off the face of the earth. But no, she just keeps getting more real!”

A boy and a girl meet one morning at a school basketball court. They both learn they are products of divorce and instantly strike a friendship that could last a lifetime. The problem is the boy is new in town and the girl is moving out of town. Their one-day friendship reminds them that while nothing lasts forever, nothing is ever really ‘gone’ from their lives. With moving performances from the non-professional actors, ‘March April’ is like a tween version of ‘Before Sunrise’ and ‘Once.’

In Kenya’s Western Province, most drinking water is contaminated. The wood many Kenyans use to boil this water to make it safe is increasingly valuable. Women and girls, who bear the responsibility for finding water and fuel, often miss school or work while seeking both fuel and water. Some even encounter sexual violence. Yet waterborne illness remains a daily—and life-threatening—reality for them and their families. Carbon For Water introduces audiences to the inspiring people who face these hardships, and explores one company’s innovative solution for improving the health of millions of Kenyans and the environment in which they live.

In WOLF CALL, Mike Wiley is William Bradford Huie of Look magazine... In September of 1955, in Money, Mississippi a jury found Roy Bryant Jr. and J.W. Milam both not guilty of murdering 14-year old Emmett Till from Chicago. Before the trial they had admitted to kidnapping Emmett, but held no blame in his disappearance and consequent murder. They weren’t even indicted for the abduction: off scot-free, clean as a whistle. Not a word had been uttered outside a courtroom by them or their kin, until now. Without this missing piece of the puzzle, hypocrisy and myth had flourished. It is now January 24, 1956, nearly six months after the kidnapping, murder and subsequent trial. William Bradford Huie sits down with the accused killers, J.W. and Roy, two men who have been hoisted on the shoulders of white supremacy. Huie questions the men, not as a journalistic source and not as interrogator to witness, but as a southern white man to southern white men. He knows they did it, that answer is brutally obvious. What this reporter wants to understand, what Look magazine is paying $4000 dollars to print and what several million Americans just like you will pay to read and gossip over is, why? As Roy and J.W. open up to Huie, hypocrisy is exposed, myth dispelled...

FAMILY • SHORT NARRATIVE

Kyle is a drunk. In a permanent state of disrepair, he sits in front of his trailer all day, drinking beer, and attempting to ignore his family. His wife and two kids have long since given up on him—only his teenage son continues to acknowledge his existence, but even that seems to come under threat when the family discovers a crude coffin buried in the backyard. While Kyle is out on one of his binges, his family unearths, to their great surprise, a second version of Kyle! This ‘new Kyle’ reveals himself to be sober, dependable, and caring—in short, superior in every way—and he quickly wins over the family’s affections. The strange gets stranger when ‘original Kyle’ arrives home from his binge and comes face-to-face with his superior doppelganger. In the end, ‘A Man, Buried’, is a short film about beer, the mysteries of the trailer park, and the human condition of being too lazy to give a damn.

All script writing, shooting, light design, sound recording and editing must take place during the allotted time. As if that isn’t challenging enough, each film must include several common elements, such as a prop, a line of dialogue and an action, which must be used within the script. Come and support our young and seasoned filmmakers....the first place winners within two age groups, Youth and Adult, will receive $250 cash. Come and support the youth and adult talented Gig Harbor Filmmakers....be part of the awards ceremony Sunday evening....October 21, 2012.
