SKIP DAY | RABBIT HUNT | THE SEND OFF

Directed by Patrick Bresnan and Ivete Lucas

SKIP DAY
Intimate glimpses of one very special day in the lives of high-school seniors from an industrial corner of the Florida Everglades: prom's over, the future is uncertain, and the irresistible pull of the beach makes the long-time friends drive 60 miles to chill, pose and revel in the waves. A film by Ivete Lucas & Patrick Bresnan.


 

RABBIT HUNT
Every weekend, seventeen year old Chris and his family hunt rabbits during sugarcane field burning and harvesting in the Florida Everglades.

WHILE I YET LIVE

Directed by Maris Curran


 

In a tiny community in the middle of Alabama there lives, together with their families, a group of African American women who have been practicing this craft for decades. This art form saved their lives and has made them rich. Rich in stories, rich in friendships and rich with the knowledge that only things of a collective nature deliver abundance for all in the end. The director follows these women in their everyday lives, and over a brief period we experience the depth of said lives, the grief that accompanies them, the blessings that they have been fortunate to receive and now pass on.
