Description

_Scheduled program:

*_Kaulah Yang Aku Mahu (You Are The One I Want)* (4 min, 2010, Malaysia) dir. by Mien Lor 

An older woman, a younger man, a simple love story. World Premiere. 

Miss Todd_ _(13 min, 2013, United Kingdom) dir. by Kristina Yee 

In 1910 New York, a woman had a dream: to fly. Miss Todd, our heroine, works to understand the principles of flight, as people all over the world were doing, but she has more than gravity holding her down. In this animated, stop-motion musical, Miss Todd’s plight and adventure soar out of her forgotten presence in aviation history. SF Bay Area Premiere. 

Mademoiselle Kiki et les Montparnos (14 min, 2012, France) dir. by Amelie Harrault 

‘Kiki de Montparnasse’ was the unwary muse of major avant-garde painters of the early twentieth century. Memorable witness of a flamboyant Montparnasse, she emancipated from her status as a simple model and became a Queen of the Night, a painter, a press cartoonist, a writer and a cabaret singer. SF Bay Area Premiere. 

My Dear Americans_ _(7 min, 2013, USA) dir. by Arpita Kumar 

New immigrants to the USA, a Sikh couple encounter racism on the patriotic fourth of July holiday. Witnessing her husband, Baldev, dwarf in the face of such hate triggers the wife, Tejpreet, into defiant action that redefines the racism aimed at them as well as their marriage.

*_Beside Her_ *(16 min, 2012, USA) dir. by Carrie Carnevale 

Beside Her tells the story of Dr. Rachel Moretti and Sofia Rios and how in one brief moment in time, their love for each other is measured beyond the norms of their everyday lives. SF Bay Area Premiere. 

*_Sweet, Sweet Country_ *(19 min, 2013, U S A) dir. by Dehanza Rogers 

Living in a small Southern town, 20 year-old refugee Ndizeye struggles to support not only herself, but the family she left behind in a Kenyan refugee camp. Her struggle becomes so much more when her family literally shows up at her doorstep. 

December 25 (1 min, 2012, Australia) dir. by Wendy Dent 

A Christmas message speaks louder than words. Produced without a camera, actors, interviewees or even animation, December 25 delivers a new take on Christmas — and the explosive significance of subtext. The film’s context is Christmas, but wait a minute — it’s about much more than that. In just 60 seconds this film reveals the immeasurable power of words. SF Premiere. 

*_Tits._ *(5 min, 2013, USA) dir. by Louisa Bertman 

Tits. is a story about … Tits. An animated narrative exploring questions surrounding the feminine. 

Filmmaker Q&A. 

Some films are for adult audiences only.
