The event

Finding Freedom in Music, Directed by Chad Brummett

A New Mexico-based non-profit tirelessly works to bring guitars to at-risk youth throughout the state. Through the eyes of recipients, the organization’s founders, and celebrity spokesperson and musician Cody Jasper, learn how this humble operation is saving the lives of teens through the power of music.

Healing Waters, Directed by Derek Johnson

Linda Troeller is an art documentarian who is known for creating sensual images inside sublime water environments that were inspired by her childhood exposure to the healing powers of water. In this biographical film, we discover the intimate relationships between water, the female gaze, and a resident artist from the Hotel Chelsea. Healing Waters explores Linda’s work with key figures in the art industry who examine her as a valued contributor to the first generation feminists movement.

Not Another Ballet Story, Directed by Emily Packer

A small contemporary dance company in San Francisco provides dancers with a unique opportunity to write the future of ballet, away from the ballet world’s entrenched ‘story ballet’ tradition.
