NewFilmmakers to Present IN THE MAGIC OF THE GREEN MOUNTAINS & DIRTY SHIELD, 4/9
On Wednesday, April 9th, NewFilmmakers presents the Documentary IN THE MAGIC OF THE GREEN MOUNTAINS, a Short Fil Program, and the new Feature DIRTY SHIELD.
Scott Chamberlin Hoyt's IN THE MAGIC OF THE GREEN MOUNTAINS (2013, 73 minutes) will play at 6:00 p.m. Vermont herbalists Jeff and Melanie Carpenter sold their natural products business to buy raw land and start an organic farm to grow medicinal herbs, rather than source them from half-way around the world. The farmers exemplify a relationship of living sustainably with nature, that requires giving, as much as receiving. We see into their lives, the healing dimension, the changes.
The Short Film Program (beginning at 7:30 p.m.) features three films. Katrina Strickland's UNITY IN WE (2009, 6 minutes) tells the story of a young girl who realizes that it takes everyone to care and be involved in her community in order to have a safe living environment.
Enrique Flores Roldan's SLEEP PARALYSIS (2013, 12 minutes) features Juliom, who is paralyzed - half-awake, half-asleep. In order to wake up, he must accept reality.
Toni Branson's THE EDUCATION OF ELLIS (2013, 35 minutes) features Ellis, who must decide if he believes in himself as much as the people around him do. His future depends on it.
The Feature Presentation, beginning at 8:30 p.m., will be Edgar Jimz's DIRTY SHIELD (2014, 86 minutes). Detective Ricardo Colletti's personal life is turned upside down when his wife is raped by members of a notorious street gang. When two of the gang members are found dead, the Internal Affairs Bureau makes a bold move to catch their suspect before the remaining rapist is killed. They will attempt to break the blue wall of silence in an unorthodox way.
