Our Mockingbird by Sandra Jaffe (US, 2013, 60 min.). Fifty years after the novel To Kill A Mockingbird was published it still resonates throughout American culture. Our Mockingbird uses the novel as a lens to look at the issues of race, class, gender, and justice. Woven through the film is the story of a twenty-first century impact of To Kill A Mockingbird as two high schools in Birmingham, Alabama—on all-black, with no theater department or even auditorium, and one all-white with a state of the art theater—collaborate on the adapted play To Kill A Mockingbird.

Nostalgia by Johnnie Hobbs (18 min.). Nostalgia is not about dreams deferred, but about dreams derailed. An aging entertainer, that can't let go of his successful past and wife and how this affects his present day life and his relationship with his son. What happens to a living legend as he struggles to hold on to his music and muse despite the fervent opposition of his loving but resentful son.
