RHYMES FOR YOUNG GHOULS by Jeff Barnaby. This is a kick ass, girl power, native Canadian indie action flick that is a perfect prelude to Halloween. Red Crow Mi’gMaq reservation, 1976: By government decree, every Indian child under the age of 16 must attend residential school. In the kingdom of the crow, that means imprisonment at St. Dymphna’s. That means being at the mercy of “Popper”, the sadistic Indian agent who runs the school. At 15, Aila is the weed princess of Red Crow. Hustling with her uncle Burner, she sells enough dope to pay Popper her “truancy tax”, keeping her out of St.Ds. But when Aila’s drug money is stolen and her father Joseph returns from prison, the precarious balance of Aila’s world is destroyed. Her only options are to run or fight … and Mi’gMaq don’t run. It screens as part of our on-going series CANADA IS BIGGER THAN THE U.S.

FISHING WITHOUT NETS by Cutter Hodierne. Shot in East Africa using Somali non-actors, Fishing Without Nets tells the mesmerizing and sobering story of the pirates from the Somali point of view. First-time feature filmmaker Cutter Hodierne combines the epic cinematic vision of a glorious action-thriller with intimate, textured qualities of an art film, humanizing the pirates by bringing us inside their moral dilemmas and gut-wrenching struggles.

‘Every creative act is a sudden cessation of stupidity.’ – Edwin Land

 

With the invention of instant photography the visual landscape took a giant leap forward. The photographer could now have a print of what was, just moments ago, a vague idea.

To celebrate the instant photograph the New Orleans Photo Alliance, in partnership with Zeitgeist Theater, is seeking work created utilizing instant materials for an exhibition at the Zeitgeist Theatre gallery during December 2014 (PhotoNOLA 2014).

The juror is Grant Hamilton, director of TIME ZERO, a film about the demise of Polaroid and the resurgence of instant photography via The Impossible Project.

NOPA will be accepting submissions through October 5, 2014. Enter here.

During the run of the exhibition Zeitgeist will screen Mr. Hamilton’s film and there will be a workshop showcasing the new Impossible Instant Lab.

About the JurorGrant Hamilton received his BFA from the University of Illinois, Urbana/Champaign. His film ‘TIME ZERO’ has screened at SilverDOCS festival, Manhattan Film Festival, DOC NYC and others. It received best Documentary prize at both Vision Fest 12 and The Palo Alto Int’l Film Festival.
