Alex Dreaming

(74m, U S A) dir. by Dane Dakota

View the trailer

Alex McCloud is dead, apparently murdered by several women after his divorce and his nomination for a ten million dollar prize. He narrates his autobiography, of a renaissance man plagued with mental illness, from beyond the grave.

“Alex Dreaming” is the moving mystery of Alex McCloud, a decorated Vietnam veteran who suffers from multiple mental illnesses, including post-traumatic stress disorder, triggered by his commission of a secret crime during that war.

In spite of his illness, McCloud has built a highly successful and remarkably diverse career as a trial attorney, congressman, and health care leader. In addition, he is an accomplished artist, filmmaker, music composer, and still photographer recognized internationally for his images of nudes.

Following his retirement, McCloud falls into a deep depression laced with hallucinations. Wandering the forest on the edge of suicide, he encounters the funny and mysterious Nina Jane. She is the woman of his dreams and he is immediately enchanted.

Soon after, he learns he has been nominated for a Presidential Renaissance Person Award funded with ten million dollars from an anonymous donor.

Amid his new fame, McCloud is pursued by women seeking to kill him and is plagued by a wife who discovers his affair with Nina Jane.

“Alex Dreaming' is laced with gorgeous imagery and is moved along by a striking range of music. The film powerfully explores questions of human consciousness and the struggle to escape the grip of the ego. It is simultaneously romantic and funny, tragic, and ultimately, triumphant.

An experimental Montreal remake of The Wizard of Oz where the Wizard is a father inventing memories of his daughter trapped in her favorite film. A love letter to cinema, child-like imagination, and the places we call home.  The Nomads of Oz is a meta-fiction presenting real people and locations as the land of Oz. Without effects or sets, it presents the “real” world as a fantastical and magical universe as to convince the child in all of us that the line between life and fiction is our own to draw.

A Body Without Organs

(81m, U S A) dir. by Stephen Graves

View the Trailer

A Body Without Organs was shot intimately with my father and mother over a one and a half year period at their home in Florida. This film is a portrait of their lives in the present, a supple present marked by frequent incursions into various pasts, real and imagined. My father has no colon. He is narcoleptic. His friends are all ghosts. His life is dreamt. In the house there is my mother. There are the cats. And then there is a body without organs.

In the words of Jack Sargeant, film writer, critic, and programmer for the Revelations Film Festival in Perth, Australia, ' re-imagining the personal documentary, exposing souls, exploring human suffering and the value & meaning of true love. Without forgetting the values that inspired underground filmmakers: experimentation and unique personal stories.'

Ten-Buck Baton

(107m, U S A)  dir. by Nimer Basha

Follow a $10 bill as it navigates throughout a day and comes across an eclectic group of characters including: a pseudo-tough guy whose true colors are revealed; an idiotic couple who takes a fortune teller's advice too seriously; a meek man who earns respect with a hair-raising wager; a homeless mugger who gets an incredible reversal of fortune at the expense of a car salesman who endures some life-altering twists of fate; and a tongue-tied cop and his dreamgirl stripper who realize they have everything in common - with one ironic exception. The $10 bill acts as the 'fly on the wall' and allows us to voyeuristically watch all the whimsical coincidences and surprises it sees.

View the Trailer

In the summer of 2012, several film reels, badly damaged, were found in the attic of a recently deceased, mentally ill, conservative, Christian woman. On the reels were the remains of a motion picture, produced circa 1997. Even with much effort, only 50 minutes of the original six hours of footage were salvageable. This footage has been restored and the resulting film posthumously titled, Bhoner.

Bhoner is an epic of conservative, Christian values and an allegory in the vein of C.S. Lewis and The Bible. It is a cautionary tale about the dangers of homosexuality and violence that plays ironically upon the elements of the slasher films and teen rom-coms of its day. It is a rare experience, a post-modern achievement, and a landmark in the annals of Film.

Though much of the story has been destroyed by time and cat piss, the restoration retains much of its original plot. Kisses, an impressionable teenage girl, is sent to Summer School by her overbearing and histrionic mother. She finds herself homosexually attracted to one of her schoolmates, Poppy, and pursues her. At a social carousal, Kisses is struck by homosexual delusions and believes that the murderer of her father (actually a suicide; most likely gay) is stalking Poppy. After being humiliated by means of a social intrigue crafted by a schoolgirl named Dimple, Poppy loses her mind and convinces Kisses to kill everyone.

Beneath the door handle is a mysterious, sticky, berry-like substance. Lewis looks up to see one of the suspects, Professor Henson Bower, glowering at him from beneath a tree in the distance. Almost in the same instant, Lewis gets a call from his sobbing girlfriend, Brownie, who has just found the lifeless body of their pet bunny. A clerical error at the vet’s office leads to an impromptu sexual encounter between grief-stricken Brownie and a mysterious hunk named Rory. The discovery of the affair leads to Lewis’s increased involvement in the investigation.
