The Owls

ABOUT THE FILM:

A funny, mysterious and humane generational anthem, THE OWLS is an experimental thriller/film noir about four “Older-Wiser-Lesbians” who accidentally kill a young lesbian and try to get away with it. Raised in the shadow of “pathological lesbian” films like THE FOX, THE CHILDREN’S HOUR and THE KILLING OF SISTER GEORGE, the OWLs once embraced the utopian vision of Lesbian Nation. Now, approaching middle age, the revolution has eluded their dreams. Caught between a culture that still has no place for them, and a younger generation indifferent to their contributions, the OWLs face an emotionally complex set of circumstances that have yet to be compassionately and truthfully addressed.

THE OWLS’ screenplay is by Sarah Schulman (best known for her novels AFTER DELORES and PEOPLE IN TROUBLE), is based on a story by writer/director/professor Cheryl Dunye (THE WATERMELON WOMAN, SHE DON’T FADE, STRANGER INSIDE), and stars some of the most popular underground artists in Lesbian Cinema, including Guinevere Turner (GO FISH, The L Word, AMERICAN PSYCHO), V.S. Brodie (GO FISH), Lisa Gornick (TICK-TOCK LULLABYE) and Deak Evgenikos (The ITTY BITTY TITTY COMMITTE).

Undertow
(Contracorriente)

ABOUT THE FILM:

In this unique ghost story set on the Peruvian seaside, a married fisherman struggles to reconcile his devotion to his male lover within his town's rigid traditions. Miguel (Cristian Mercado), a handsome young fisherman, and his beautiful bride, Mariela (Tatiana Astengo), are about to welcome their first child. But Miguel harbors a scandalous secret. He's in love with Santiago (Manolo Cardona), a painter, who is ostracized by the town because he's gay. After a tragic accident occurs, Miguel must choose between sentencing Santiago to eternal torment or doing right by him and, in turn, revealing their relationship to Mariela—and the entire village.

END OF THE LINE

ABOUT THE FILM:

Co-Presented by National Geographic and Greenpeace, and fresh from its North American premiere at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, this heart-wrenching documentary is nothing short of the “inconvenient truth” about the devastating effect of overfishing on the world’s ecosystems. The first major documentary to reveal the extent of the crisis facing today's oceans, THE END OF THE LINE challenges us to imagine a world without fish…period. This is Earth’s future by 2048 if we do not stop, think and act.

AND THEN CAME LOLA

ABOUT THE FILM:

In this sexy, lesbian romp—loosely loosely inspired on the German new wave classic RUN LOLA RUN—a talented, but distracted photographer, Lola, on the verge of success in both love and work, could lose it all if she doesn’t make it to a crucial meeting on time. But, as usual, Lola is late. With her job and girlfriend on the line, she has three chances to make it right. In a desperate race through the streets and backrooms of San Francisco, time grows short—will Lola make it? Will she come at all? With a pop sensibility that mixes live action, animation and still photography AND THEN CAME LOLA explores love’s age old question in a fresh new way; “If we try, try again, will we finally get it right?”

COLLEGE BOYS LIVE:
A Documentary

ABOUT THE FILM:

You may have paid to watch the sexy webcams, but you haven't really gone inside this infamous online party house until you see George O'Donnell's fascinating documentary. Meet "house mothers" Zac and Jonathan and their teen and twentysomething tenants—troublemaker J.C., heartbreaker Tim and fresh-out-of-the-closet Chuck—then see what happens when their neighbors rally to kick them out. Given the voyeuristic nature of documentary filmmaking, voyeurism itself makes for a compelling subject in this unpredictable and entertaining film.

WERE THE WORLD MINE

ABOUT THE FILM:

If you thought star-crossed lovers and love potions created confusion in the forest in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, wait until you see what they do to an all-boys high school putting on a production of that Shakespearean classic. Handsome and imaginative Timothy (Tanner Cohen) is the class outsider, a student who mentally escapes his surroundings by imagining a row of dodgeball-wielding jocks as a corps de ballet. When he gets cast as Puck opposite his secret crush, dreamy jock Jonathon (Nathaniel David Becker), things get amorously complicated - Puck, after all, has a gift for creating mischief and for making the unlikeliest of people besotted with each other. Even the Neanderthal coach, who wants to shut down the production to spare his athletes from playing women’s roles, isn’t safe. From chorus lines of rugby players to musical numbers built around the Bard, the sweet and sexy WERE THE WORLD MINE (adapted by writer-director Tom Gustafson from his acclaimed short film FAIRIES) is a delightful and exhilarating blend of theatrical fantasy and adolescent reality.

2008 | USA | 98 min.
