Written and Directed by Raphael Dirani, HELLO, MY SWEET BOY taps into the bittersweet journey of a son who has a parent suffereing with dementia. The film also taps into the son’s bisexuality and how hard it is for him to come out to his mother – after dating a man for seven years.
Part animation and part documentary, Martin Ponferrada’s Award Winning Short Film EVERYTHING IS UPSTREAM, is a visually stunning piece of artistic storytelling – in only ten minutes. Ponferrada takes us into the dreams of Buddhist monks from around the world. Vivid descriptions of their dreams are captured in meticulous detail through the beauty of rotoscope.
LIKE ANIMALS is a visually stunning film which opens with a haunting score in a neighborhood lackluster of life. The non-color palette and neutral tones define a monotone way of living that reflects the lives of the characters that call this home. The score creates a foreboding pulse to the film that carries the story in a haunting rhythm.
