Addictions take many forms. For 30-year-old Norwegian adrenaline junkie and professional BASE jumper Karina Hollekim, her addiction is danger. Amongst spectacular landscapes in some of the most remote corners of the world, the film offers stunning cinematography and a breathtaking joyride.
3 1⁄2 MINUTES, TEN BULLETS dissects the shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis by Michael Dunn in Jacksonville, Florida on Black Friday, 2012. The film examines the aftermath of this systemic tragedy, the contradictions within the American criminal justice system – particularly the implications of the “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law, and the racial prejudices that ensued.
Marlise Muñoz was 33 and 14 weeks pregnant when she died. She suffered a pulmonary embolism and was pronounced brain-dead in Fort Worth, TX. Marlise had previously told her family that she never wanted to be on life support, under any circumstances. And since a brain-dead patient is in fact legally dead, that should have been the end of this sad story. But the Muñoz family was forced to keep Marlise on mechanical support against their will for 62 days, because of a little known law stating “a person may not withdraw or withhold life-sustaining treatment… from a pregnant patient.”
Set in the Hasidic enclave of Borough Park, Brooklyn, 93QUEEN follows a group of tenacious Hasidic women who are smashing the patriarchy in their community by creating the first all-female volunteer ambulance corps in New York City. With unprecedented — and insider — access, 93QUEEN offers up a unique portrayal of a group of empowered women who are taking matters into their own hands to change their own community from within.
Kelly (33) is saving herself for marriage and following Christian Courtship, a conservative Christian alternative to dating where parents, in conjunction with God, search for their daughters’ husbands. Kelly’s own parents think she should meet a husband through dating and disagree with courtship, so she moves in with “spiritual parents” and embarks on a journey to find a spouse.
A New Color is a joy-filled, heart-rending story about community, art and lives that matter. Bay Area artist and civil rights activist Edythe “Edy” Boone is a sprightly septuagenarian who seems only to gain energy over the years. Since she was a girl, this celebrated muralist (San Francisco Women’s Building) has aspired “to develop a new color no one has seen in life.” Edy paints walls to build bridges toward unity when the chokehold death of her nephew Eric Garner and his final words – “I Can’t Breathe” – ignite a national outcry for racial justice.
