    Saturday March 10, 2012 2:00pm - 3:33pm @ Canon Screening Room (6th, Austin, TX 78703)

    What It's Like is a true story. John - a magazine writer - visits Mastow, a complete stranger living in a retirement home. John has only a room number and a name, both written on the back of a Chinese food menu beside a single, circled word: 'Mushrooms.' What starts as a bizarre transaction becomes a moment of connection. This is a story about being afraid to get old. It's about the ways in which losing people affects us. It's about talking with people from a different generation. It's also kind of about hallucinogens.

    Annie is a rebellious ten-year-old girl. She lives on the outskirts of town with her father Marvin, who, when not herding goats, mostly sleeps the day away. Virtually devoid of parental guidance, Annie is left to fend for herself and do as she pleases. With no moral compass, she roams the neighboring lands, shoplifting and engaging in general destructive behavior. Her routine is broken one day while playing in the woods; she hears an old woman calling from deep within an abandoned well, asking for help. Scared and untrusting of the unseen stranger, Annie deliberates on her course of action.

Made entirely from camera-phone footage, "King Kelly" is a sensational journey through hedonistic American youth culture and the YouTube generation.

    The video begins by concentrating on the singer and explicit the polyphonic mechanism through which the base of the song is constructed. When the lyrics start, the video turns to a natural scene, more lyrical and organic. Trunks, branches and stones react to the music just like another character, maybe as a inner reflection of the protagonist, with who they vibrate and dialogue within the parallel editing. And if during the first verse the singer appears among a forest, during the second, he ascends to the mountain, evermore free, surrounded by the stars that echo the halo of the trees.

Eating Alabama

    In search of a simpler life, a young couple returns home to Alabama where they set out to eat the way their grandparents did – locally and seasonally. But as their new diet forces them to navigate the agricultural industrial complex, they soon realize that nearly everything about the food system has changed since farmers once populated their family histories. A thoughtful and often funny essay on community, the South and sustainability, "Eating Alabama" is a story about why food matters.

    The Austin Chronicle recommends this event in "The Place Is the Thing:  The influence of Geography in a Quartet of Docs." Read the full feature here.

    Partially blinded by an unknown illness at the age of 4 and sent out to work on the tough streets of Kano in Nigeria at the age of 9, Aisha Sani Abdullahi's life chances were not great. However, a chance encounter sent Aisha's life in a completely different direction… Aisha's Song is an energetic and beautifully shot 16mm documentary that uses the sounds of street life in Kano in order to create a vibrant and organic soundscape. Touching and uplifting, the film is a story of female empowerment from a part of the world where women are all too often overlooked.

ALS or “Lou Gehrig's Disease” is a degenerative disorder that systemically incapacitates the body, commandeering the ability to hold, speak, walk, swallow, and even breathe until it causes the lungs to fatally collapse. They don't know what causes it, and there is no cure. After learning he had 2-5 years to live, Ed chose to examine what hope looks like in situations where it doesn't exist.

Intrigued by his findings, Juergen published the photographs on the internet, unaware that his small invention would send shockwaves around the world and alter his life forever.

Beautifully shot on 35mm the film has been praised for its ability to extract with sensitivity the most hidden recesses of the human soul and for its distinctive documentary language.

Waiting For Lightning
    Tuesday March 13, 2012 7:45pm - 9:12pm @ Canon Screening Room (6th, Austin, TX 78703)

    From the producers of "Step Into Liquid", comes "Waiting For Lightning", the story of Danny Way, a young boy from a broken home in Vista, CA, whose passion for skateboarding would one day bring him and his creation, a ramp of prodigious and dangerous proportions, across many cultural and ideological boundaries to attempt the impossible: jump China’s Great Wall on a skateboard. It’s a film about how much abuse the body can sustain, how deep you have to dig to survive the betrayals of family, and how high and far dreams can fly.

Wildness
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 12:00pm - 1:14pm @ Canon Screening Room (6th, Austin, TX 78703)

    Rooted in the tropical underground of Los Angeles nightlife, "Wildness" is a portrait of the Silver Platter, a historic bar that has been home to Latin/LGBT immigrant communities since 1963. With a magical-realist flourish the bar itself becomes a character, narrating what happens when a weekly party (organized by Director Wu Tsang, DJs NGUZUNGUZU, and Total Freedom) called Wildness explodes into creativity and conflict. What does “safe space” mean? Who needs it? And how does it differ among us? At the Silver Platter, the search for answers creates coalitions across generations.

Trash Dance
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 7:30pm - 8:35pm @ Canon Screening Room (6th, Austin, TX 78703)

    Sometimes inspiration is found in unexpected places. Choreographer Allison Orr finds beauty and grace in garbage trucks -- and in the men and women who pick up our trash. She joins city sanitation workers on their daily routes to listen, learn, and ultimately to try to convince them to collaborate in a unique dance performance. Hard working, often carrying a second job, their lives are already full with work, family and dreams of their own. But some step forward, and after months of rehearsal, two dozen trash collectors and their trucks perform an extraordinary spectacle. On an abandoned airport runway, thousands of people show up to see how in the world a garbage truck can "dance."

    The Austin Chronicle recommends this event in "Art as Acts of Subversion and Immersion: 'The Sheik and I,' 'Trash Dance,' and 'Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters'." Read the full feature here.

Sunset Stories
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 9:30pm - 10:57pm @ Canon Screening Room (6th, Austin, TX 78703)

    May, a high-strung and overly meticulous nurse, must return to Los Angeles to retrieve bone marrow for a transplant. Soon after her trip begins, her world turns upside down when past and present collide and she runs smack into JP, the man she left behind five years ago. Flustered, May loses the cooler containing the marrow. With only 24 hours remaining, the two embark on an offbeat search through the streets of Los Angeles only to discover that just when you think all is lost you find what you least expected.
