All Small Bodies is a feminist, sci-fi take on the Grimm tale of Hansel and Gretel. It occurs in the distant future among the ruins of a planetary catastrophe, revealing the abuses of history and technology. In the wake of the chaotic aftermath, there are several resilient survivors including two young girls named Z and Bub. All Small Bodies follows these curious adolescents who have long been lost and alone in the haunted, other-worldly woods, as they awaken their extrasensory abilities and reclaim their autonomy from a menacing dark presence.

Feminist Horror fever dream. A lone woman (Angelica Ross) marks her trail and sheds some excess baggage along the way. A fresh take on the modern Western.

 

Crystal Lake, 2016

Showtimes: Thursdays July 19, August 9, August 30, September 20 at 11:00 am, Fridays August 3, August 24, & September 14 at 11:00 am

Total run time: 19 min.

Crystal Lake is about a group of young girls who take over a skate park, forming an all-female force field on the half pipe. There on the reclaimed ramp, with no boys around, they are thriving and visible. This is an anthem for young feminists, which presents female friendship as a means to survive adolescence. EVERY GRRRL-SHAPED BREATH IS A BATTLE CRY.

 

Lola, 15, 2017

Showtimes: Thursdays July 19, August 9, August 30, September 20 at 11:00 am

Total run time: 5 min.

Lola, 15 is the first film in an upcoming series called LET ME GET WHAT I WANT THIS TIME. It’s a short, formal documentary which intimately observes the sacred spaces of a fifteen year old girl named Lola. The larger series will examine many more of these spaces across a wide range of race, class, location and culture.

The painful process of shedding adolescence is actualized in this highly curated interior–a sanctuary and visible elegy to childhood. Through languid drifts across the details of Lola’s bedroom, a secret language is revealed.
