Haiti
A form of modern day child slavery still exists in Haiti. It’s called restavek and over 300,000 children live under these conditions. This is a fictional story of one such boy who must deal with forgiving his mother for giving him away and living under the harsh reality of being a servant. In his search for mental escape, he turns to making a kap, which means "kite" in Creole. Unfortunately, his moment of flight is soon dashed and once again, like so many other restaveks, he can only dream of flying away.


KILL THE LIGHT  - Dir. Mark Schimmel
Drama - 22 minutes 
After the loss of his wife, Ray Brinley spends his days on the road scooping up road kill in Door County, IL. One afternoon he stumbles upon a woman, Cheryl, left for dead. Ray, who is accustomed to picking up 'the occasional dog or a deer, but never a person', invites Cheryl into his modest home in an attempt to help. Together, Cheryl and Ray begin to unravel the mystery of her haunting past. After an intense encounter with the county sheriff and a series of revealing flashbacks, Cheryl realizes that she needs to take matters into her own hands and has only one chance to kill the light to make things right.

The Manual - Dir. Wil Magness
Sci-Fi / Fantasy - 29 minutes 
In the distant future, James is the last human on Earth. He is raised and protected by a humanoid robot, the Machine, who brings him up on a strange composite religion described in a handheld device called The Manual. The Manual’s teachings fuse aspects of old-world religion and incorporate robots as spiritual beings in the afterlife, alongside and equal to humans.
The man wrestles with loneliness and depression while the search for other humans becomes more and more futile. As his faith in The Manual is shaken, he sets out to test one of The Manual’s core beliefs: reincarnation to the next life in the city of the Creator. What he finds could be described terribly as exactly that.

Shoken - Dir. Jack Ross
Documentary - 11 minutes 
Shoken' (2017) is a short-subject documentary film on the life of Shoken Winecoff Roshi, a Buddhist monk and founding teacher of the Ryumonji Zen Monastery outside of Decorah, Iowa. Beginning with Shoken’s initial contact many years ago with Zazen meditation and Dainin Katagiri Roshi (1928-1990), a Buddhist monk based in Minneapolis, the film explores his journey to becoming ordained himself as a monk under Katagiri Roshi, and the establishment of the Ryumonji monastery. Through its exploration of Shoken's life experiences and encounter with meditation, as well as greater implications of its practice, we don't just learn about Shoken from merely a biographical perspective; rather, we are brought into his world through sound, motion, action, and drama.

The Things You Think I'm Thinking - Dir. Sherren Lee
Drama - 14 minutes 
Canada
A black male burn-survivor and amputee goes on a date with a regularly-abled man. After the bar, they go back to his apartment, where he faces his demons as he attempts to experience intimacy for the first time since his accident, ten years ago.
