🎞 Thunder Road

Based on the short film with the same title that won no less than thirteen international awards, the film Thunder Road (written, directed and performed by Jim Cummings) makes you cry and laugh at the same time. This touching ‘dramedy’ impresses from the jaw-dropping 10 minutes opening shot, when police officer Arnaud comes to grips with his mom’s death giving a heartfelt eulogy at her funeral. A true gem.
director: Jim Cummings | country: USA | year: 2018

🎞 To the Stars

To the Stars is a beautifully shot film set in 1960s Oklahoma. Iris Deerborne’s world changes completely when Maggie appears and an unlikely relationship between the two develops. While spending more time with her, Iris discovers more about the tragedy that caused Maggie to move to Wakita. Meanwhile, Iris has her own coming-of-age arc as she discovers more about herself and the secretive nature of people that surround her. A mesmerizing and almost mystical film. This screening is in black and white.
director: Martha Stephens | country: USA | year: 2019
