    109 MIN. FAMILY

    The Afictions lms shine a light on societal issues impacting the experiencesthe suffering and the wellbeing--of the mentally ill, some specic to the Indonesian culture and others with global application. Balinese religious symbology, Dutch colonial occupation and Indonesian historical events play a role in the their stories. At the same time, uni-versal concepts rise to the surface: home placement can be more benecial than institutional care; urban living impacts disease onset and outcomes; and treat-ment modalities that integrate psychiatric and outpatient treat-ment can be the most effective. In the end, it is my hope that the ndings claried and made accessible in Afictions help shape the care and treatment of the mentally ill in Indonesia, in other developing nations and around the world.

    AWARDS: Best Narrative Short: American International Film Festival, October 2011 Honorable Mention: 2012 Green Bay Film Festival

    A boy and a girl meet one morning at a school basketball court. They both learn they are products of di-vorce and instantly strike a friend-ship that could last a lifetime. The problem is the boy is new in town and the girl is moving out of town. Their one-day friendship reminds them that while nothing lasts for-ever, nothing is ever really gone from their lives. With moving per-formances from the non-profes-sional actors, March April is like a tween version of Before Sunrise and Once.

    In WOLF CALL, Mike Wiley is William Bradford Huie of Look magazine... In September of 1955, in Money, Mississippi a jury found Roy Bryant Jr. and J.W. Milam both not guilty of murder-ing 14-year old Emmett Till from Chicago. Before the trial they had admitted to kidnapping Emmett, but held no blame in his disappearance and consequent murder. They werent even indicted for the abduction: off scot-free, clean as a whistle. Not a word had been uttered outside a courtroom by them or their kin, until now. Without this missing piece of the puzzle, hypoc-risy and myth had ourished.

    It is now January 24, 1956, nearly six months after the kidnap-ping, murder and subsequent trial. William Bradford Huie sits down with the accused killers, J.W. and Roy, two men who have been hoisted on the shoulders of white supremacy. Huie ques-tions the men, not as a journalistic source and not as interroga-tor to witness, but as a southern white man to southern white men. He knows they did it, that answer is brutally obvious. What this reporter wants to understand, what Look magazine is paying $4000 dollars to print and what several million Ameri-cans just like you will pay to read and gossip over is, why?

    As Roy and J.W. open up to Huie, hypocrisy is exposed, myth dispelled...

  • As any self-respecting lm festival, Gig Harbor hosted its fth annual 72 Film Competition, bringing in lmmakers from around the area, amateur and professional alike.

    Our aim: to bring light to the lesser-known lmmakers in the area and give them a chance to prove their creative ability in a relatively short amount of time.

    What is the 72 Hour Film Competition? Developed to chal-lenge the creativity and technological skills of the lmmaker, competitors have 72 hours to create a movie of up to ve min-utes. All script writing, shooting, light design, sound record-ing and editing must take place during the allotted time. As if that isnt challenging enough, each lm must include several common elements, such as a prop, a line of dialogue and an action, which must be used within the script.

    Come and support our young and seasoned lmmakers....the rst place winners within two age groups, Youth and Adult, will receive $250 cash. Come and support the youth and adult talented Gig Harbor Filmmakers....be part of the awards ceremony Sunday evening....October 21, 2012.
