NewFilmmakers Los Angeles Monthly Film Festival – InFocus: American Indian, Aboriginal and Inuit Cinema (#NFMLA)
Saturday, November 17, 10:30-23:00
Samuel Goldwyn Theater
1139 South Hill Street, Los Angeles, California 90015
Phone: 213-741-7402
This month is a special evening showcase of films by indigenous filmmakers from America, Canada, and New Zealand, as well as documentaries about native subjects, in addition to a selection of local and international films. The evening opens with a feature film, ‘Sometimes Our Friends Come Over (and sometimes we're all alone),’ a look at the unraveling of a millennial relationship in the shadow of the Trump era. It’s written and directed by visual and sound artist and CalArts Art/Technology MFA, Daniel Watkins, who frames the film in a lo-fi aesthetic that places the audience in the middle of realistic moments of awkwardness and confrontation. There is a shorts program, InFocus: American Indian, Aboriginal & Inuit Cinema, that includes emerging voices in today’s Native filmmaking, and films that premiered at Sundance, Toronto International Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival and ImagiNative. Themes of familial struggle, exploration of identity, the meaning of home, and childhood hope and wonder course through this selected programming. The night concludes with a shorts program that stems from an absurd prep school interview to a comical look at a routine household chore, then to the personal effects of hatred, through a quinceañera, lingering in the isolation of the digital age, and on to the poetic exploration of addiction, and finally, into a moment of kindness that emerges from tragedy. The program tells these tales through animation, music videos, and live action. Doors will open to the public at 16:00 with a pre-reception before each shorts program begins where attendees can sip cocktails and mingle with industry professionals and festival selected filmmakers in the lounge.
