Profile (Opening Night Film)

West Coast Premiere

 

Cyprus, Russian Federation, UK, USA | 2018 | 103 Min | Dir. Timur Bekmambetov 

 

Amy, a struggling journalist looking for her next big story, pitches her editor on investigating the recruitment of European women by ISIS. Pretending to be recently converted to Islam, she creates an incriminating Facebook profile where she likes and shares posts themed around islamic extremism. It doesn’t take long for Bilel, a Jihad fighter in Syria, to set his eyes on this seemingly vulnerable prey.

Black Mother

Pacific Northwest Premiere

 

USA | 2018 | 77 Min | Dir. Khalik Allah

 

 

Powerfully hypnotic and formally singular, filmmaker/photographer Khalik Allah’s second feature is documentary storytelling at its boldest. Fueled by reflective voiceovers and dreamlike visuals, presented in digital, Super 8mm and black-and-white Bolex, BLACK MOTHER transports the viewer into a Jamaica populated by clergymen and prostitutes. The result is an examination of religion, sex, and national identity that’s one truly unforgettable cinematic meditation.

USA | 2018 | 82 Min | Dir. Mitzi Peirone

 

 

Two fugitive women elude capture and seek refuge at the estate of their rich and very much psychotic childhood friend where they enter a terror fueled game of make believe.

Model Home

World Premiere

 

USA | 2018 | 82 Minutes | Dir. Patrick Cunningham

 

For a Latina single mother and her imaginative young son, being allowed to live in a dream house rent free seems too good to be true. As the mother’s obsessive and unstable mental state emerges, so too does living the American Dream devolve into a waking nightmare. Director Patrick Cunningham’s fascinating debut is a horrifying singular vision that speaks to Hispanic American identity.
