Shown at the 2017 True False Film Fest, this film follows Dina, an outspoken and eccentric 49-year-old in suburban Philadelphia who invites her fiancé Scott, a Walmart door greeter, to move in with her. Having grown up neurologically diverse in a world blind to the value of their experience, the two are head-over-heels for one another, but shacking up poses a new challenge.

Playing at the 2017 True False Film Fest, this film follows Radio host Obaidah Zytoon as he captures the fate of Syria through the intimate lens of a small circle of friends and journalists. Beginning with peaceful Arab Spring protests in 2011, the film offers a four-year, ground-level look at how the country spiraled into bloody civil war and the ongoing toll the conflict has taken on Syria– and, devastatingly, on a committed group of friends.

Wonder Women dvd coverWonder Women!

Shown locally at the Citizen Jane Film Fest in 2012 and Center Aisle Cinema in 2016, this film traces the fascinating evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman. From the birth of the comic book superheroine in the 1940s to the blockbusters of today, this film looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society’s anxieties about women’s liberation.
