Girl In The Chair (dir. M. Louis Gordon)
After years of confinement, a teenaged girl escapes her kidnapper and returns to the house of her long-lost family, but her homecoming is far from welcome.
Experimental Short - United States, 19:29

Apostasy (dir. H. Paul Moon)
The word apostasy evokes abandonment and renunciation. Projected into our world of epidemic gun violence, “Apostasy” is a film about shaking free from conflict, and destroying oneself – to embrace apostasy, and find peace. Filmmaker H. Paul Moon’s floating camera, Paul Singh’s dance drama, and Chester Hawkins’ bracing score combine into this transcendent work of dance film beyond borders.
Experimental Short - United States, 11:59
