ONLY THE YOUNG

Directors Jason Tippet & Elizabeth Mims

Only The Young encapsulates the best of documentary film with its sincerity but is shot with the beautiful still aesthetic of a narrative film. This coming of age documentary is scored with soul music which makes it unlike any other documentary film.

I’m ready to file ONLY THE YOUNG in the all-time coming of age canon.
– Hammer & Nail

THE INTERNATIONAL SIGN FOR CHOKING

Director Zach Weintraub

The International Sign for Choking depicts the day-to-day encounters of Josh, a would-be expatriate from the US living in Buenos Aires for the second time. While his primary purpose seems to be the production of a vaguely defined video project, he devotes more of his time to tracking down a mysteriously absent ex-girlfriend. Frustrated by continual failure, Josh finds himself the perpetrator of a series of small yet uncharacteristic acts of deceit that ultimately place him in a low-key love triangle alongside Anna, his fellow N. American housemate, and Roger, a local musician.

YOSSI

Director Eytan FOX

A sequel to Eytan Fox’s breakthrough gay story of love and loss on the front lines,  Yossi & Jagger(2002), this tender new drama follows Yossi, now a doctor, who turns the corner on the enduring pain of grief. The film had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.”

AN OVERSIMPLIFICATION OF HER BEAUTY

Directed by Terence Nance

You’ve just arrived home after a bad day. You’re broke and lonely, even though you live in the biggest and busiest city in America. You do, however, have one cause for mild optimism: you seem to have captured the attention of an intriguing young lady. You’ve rushed home to clean your apartment before she comes over. In your haste, you see that you’ve missed a call. There’s a voice mail; she tells you that she won’t be seeing you tonight.

FINDING TRUELOVE

Director Sam Kuhn

Clay, Michael and Andrew are fascinated by a yearbook from Chico High’s class of 1990 that they discover at a Value Village. Intrigued by the cryptic word “Caduceus” emblazoned across the cover, and by the countless sweet mullets and dream girls inside, the three friends lock onto one particular student: feather-banged mystery man Timothy Truelove.

CINEMA SIX

Directed and Writers Mark Potts & Cole Selix

Cinema Six resembles a movie theater-set version of “Office Space” with the same kind of raunchy humor and quarter-to-mid-life ennui.”
“Lead actor John Merriman… handles comedy and drama with equal ease and the whole cast delivers with a fair share of absurd comedic moments.”
