Event Program

Bubblegum Card: Shot in grainy B&W Super 8 circa 1994, this music video for the song "Bubble Gum Card" by Wilmington indie band Emily's Porch tells the timeless story of unrequited adolescent love and how skateboarding almost makes it all better.  

The Other Road: A documentary about three Wilmington single mothers who choose to live together with their daughters in one small house.  By joining forces, they find strength, companionship, and heal from the wounds of the past. Features the music of Rusted Root. 

The Christmas War: Fellini meets Salinger in this meditative short in which a precocious child contemplates the battles waged between men, or, at least the battle between her brother George and his best friend Oskar.   

To Whom it May Concern: Created as part of Cape Fear Community College's ARTS POETICA 3, this film is an adaptation of Wilmington poet Jada Ach's poem of the same name. The director hopes it be a lesson to every bored literature student (or instructor).       

Turn to Thin Air: In 1996, the director traveled from San Francisco to Vancouver, BC with a Super 8 camera and a bag of film. 15 years later, he edited the footage into this video that originally screened as part of Dance-a-Lorus 2010.  

Sadie's Waltz: ANHEDONIA cinematographer M. Shawn Lewallen shot this haunting story of grief and transcendence. A young woman trapped in a home destroyed by tragedy suffers her father's tyrannical abuse until a strange vision inspired by a comic book advertisement shows her an unexpected path to liberation. (Written & Directed by Edward Tyndall) 


See you there!

уour blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
say. But mаybe you could a little mοгe in the way of content so
peοplе could сonnect with it better.
Youve got аn awful lot of text for οnly hаving one or 2 images.
Maybe yоu сould space it out better?

I am sure most of you have had to inquire +Who is this?+ much
more than a dozen occasions! As we deleted the chat
log frequently, more and much more fragmented information generated.
