Sedona Premiere

A young man investigating the underworld of "factory farming" soon discovers a growing political and intellectual movement that considers animals as important as humans. Speciesism is an important meditation on how the collective global consciousness could very well be shifting to include all life forms as sacred. You will never look at animals the same way again. Especially humans.

With live Skype with director Mark Devries.

Finding Hillywood
Arizona Premiere

Set amongst the hills of Rwanda, Finding Hillywood chronicles one man's road to forgiveness, his effort to heal his country, and the realization that we all must one day face our past in order to transcend it. A unique and endearing film about the very beginning of Rwanda's film industry and the pioneers who bring local films to rural communities in their effort to find peace in a turbulent land. Finding Hillywood is a real life example of the power of film to heal a man...and a nation.

Lulu In The Nude
Southwest Premiere

After a job interview gone wrong, Lulu sets sail leaving her husband and three children behind. But being a carefree adventurer is easier said than done. Along the way, our discreet heroine will have three key encounters: with an ex-con being protected by his brothers, an old woman who is literally being bored to death, and an unhappy waitress who’s being mistreated by her boss. The surprise of love, the comfort of female intimacy, and a case of misplaced compassion are the three movements in this fugue which help Lulu find an old acquaintance she has lost touch with: herself.
