PROGRAM:

"Blue Jays" by Lev Omelchenko (GA)
Blue Jays depicts a young boy discovering and actualizing an expressive energy within himself. Set in the lush forest of Atlanta, Sequoyah Murray embodies an ancient winged spirit calling on the boy (August Murray) to not be afraid, to embrace his desire to dance, to be free. The film offers an alternative to the brutal and dehumanizing imagery that we consume on an everyday basis, and provides a healing vision.

"Rabbit Hunt" by Patrick Bresnan and Ivete Lucas (FL)
In the FL Everglades, Rabbit Hunting is considered a Rite of Passage for young men. The rabbit hunt follows 17yo Chris and his family as they hunt in the fields of the largest industrial sugar farms in the US. The film records a tradition by which migrant farm workers in the communities surrounding Lake Okeechobee have been hunting and preparing rabbits since the early 1900s. 

"Socks on Fire: Uncle John and the Copper Headed Water Rattlers" by Bo McGuire (AL)
A failed poet takes up cinematic arms when he returns home to Hokes Bluff, Alabama to discover his drag queen uncle locked out of the family home.

"Lucid Noon, Sunset Blush" by Alli Logout (NOLA)
17-year-old bb gay Micha has just moved into The Palace - a basement full of queer femme Dominatrix, lovers and misfits. They are beautiful, carefree and as young as the night.

"Birthday Cake" By Brantly Jackson Watts (GA)
Set in the deep south, Birdie marks the first anniversary of leaving her abusive lover, Donnie, with a ceremonial candle on a cake. One by one, her fellow survivors leave for the night, and Birdie is left to mourn the love she left behind with her abuser. As the evening unfurls, Birdie will be confronted by more than an aching heart in this Southern Gothic thriller. A haunting story of love, survival and the complexities found in relationships, this film examines modern domestic violence in a way that is seldom explored. An important film that promises to linger with viewers, Birthday Cake is as captivating as it is powerful.
