“306 Hollywood”

Filmmaker: Elan Boragin

When two siblings undertake an archaeological excavation of their late grandmother’s house, they embark on a magical-realist journey in search of what life remains in the objects we leave behind. “306 Hollywood” transforms the dusty fragments of an unassuming life into an epic metaphor for the nature of memory, time, and history.

“Hale County This Morning, This Evening”

Filmmaker: RaMell Ross

Composed of intimate and unencumbered moments of people in a community in Alabama’s Black Belt, “Hale County, This Morning, This Evening” offers an emotive impression of the Historic South. Daniel Collins attends college in search of opportunity while Quincy Bryant becomes a father to an energetic son. Creating a poetic form that privileges the patiently observed interstices of their lives. RaMell Ross’ film trumpets the beauty of life and consequences of race, while simultaneously existing as a testament to dreaming – despite the odds.

“Minding the Gap

Filmmaker: Bing Liu

Three young men bond across racial lines to escape volatile families in their Rust Belt hometown. Ten years later, while facing adult responsibilities, unsettling revelations force them to reckon with their fathers, their mothers, and each other.
