  Sousa on the Rez: Marching to the Beat of a Different Drum

Cathleen O'Connell

USA, Music Documentary, 201227 min, HDV, ColorEnglish

 

When you hear the phrase "Native American music" you may not think of tubas, trumpets and Sousa marches. Yet this rich musical tradition has been a part of Native American culture for over one hundred years. The documentary profiles two contemporary Indian community bands: the Fort Mojave Tribal Band, from Needles, California and the Iroquois Indian Band from upstate New York. The documentary traces the origins of these groups to their respective foundings over a century ago and uncovers a secret history of the 20th century, when "all Indian bands" toured the US and abroad.

  Montaje anónimo Behind the Stage

Marcelo Del Campo

Chile, Art Documentary, 201313 min, HDSLR, Color/Black & WhiteNo dialogue

 

The world behind the stage of the Santiago Municipal Theatre is unknown. To understand it, it is necessary to visit and discover it structurally, functionally, humanly and emotionally. Anonymity is the characteristic that best describes the stage machinery and those that operate it, which has left this trade devoid of recognition, despite constructing a fascinating world, worthy of tribute. MONTAJE ANONIMO received an honorable mention in SANFIC and FICVALDIVIA in 2013 and has just begun to screen on the international festival circuit.

Without A Net

Kelly J Richardson

Brazil/USA, Documentary, 201260 min, HD, ColorPortuguese with English subtitles

 

Djeferson, Bárbara, Rayana and Platini live in a drug controlled slum of Rio de Janeiro. Their families are struggling, their homes are physically unstable, and everyone they know has dropped out of school. When a big-top circus tent suddenly appears in a nearby parking lot, they decide to take a chance. They learn trapeze, acrobatics, juggling and contortion, then audition for the end-of-year show. Along the way, Without A Net explores the connections between risk, desire, poverty and circus, and celebrates the perseverance and resilience of youth in the face of tremendous odds. Without A Net recently premiered at the Atlanta Film Festival to enthusiastic audiences, and was invited to an extra screening during the encore/"Festival Favorites" day.

Hit Me with Music

Miquel Galofré

Jamaica/Spain, Music Documentary, 201175 min, HD CAM, ColorEnglish, Patoise with English subtitles

Jamaica continues to be on top of the world-wide music scene. Reggae has evolved to produce a new genre, Dancehall. The Dancehall phenomenon is unstoppable in Jamaica and the rest of the world. Artists, dancers, and local teenagers explain the content of the controversial Dancehall lyrics and the lifestyle created by the music. This film presents and represents the urban street culture and lifestyle that fuels and is born out of Dancehall, and captures the elements of dance which form an integral part of nightlife in Kingston. Hit Me with Music won Best Documentary and the People's Choice Award at the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival.

Vou Rifar Meu CoraçãoI Will Raffle off My Heart

Ana Rieper

Brazil, Music Documentary, 201178 min, HDV, ColorPortuguese with English subtitles

Vou Rifar Meu Coração is about the music, the performers and the followers of Brazilian romantic music, called "cheesy" by music critics and rich people. Using the music as a catalyst, this documentary shows the sentiments, love, suffering and sexuality of the fans and their idols, creating a scenario that reveals their practices and desires. This genre represents a very important part of popular art, seldom registered as part of Brazilian Popular Music. Most books about Brazilian music solemnly ignore it, even though it has always sold millions of records. Frequently associated with bad taste and poor quality, the style is admired by the low class, under-, sub- or unemployed population, originally from rural extract, banished to the cities in search of work and a better life. This film has played around the world, including the 44th Festival de Brasilia.

Cláudia Alves Vasconcelos

Cuba/Portugal, Performance/Political Documentary, 201018 min, HD, ColorSpanish with English subtitles

A group of college students from the EICTV plan an art performance piece in which they will prohibit the entrance of tourists to a Havana square. The art performance is being performed to bring awareness of the injustices that Cubans go through when they are "blocked" from going to places where only foreigners are allowed. In this documentary, we see the meetings that they have to plan the art piece, the actual performance, and the afterthoughts. The students are from a film school and are planning on filming people's reactions. From beginning to end they all discuss together the purpose of the performance and its implications as a political work of art. Cláudia Alves and her work have been recognized by the Berlinale Talent Campus.

Por fin parió PaulaIt's About Time, Paula

Patricia Alvarez Astacio, Christopher Newman

Peru, Music Documentary, 20118 min, HD, ColorSpanish with English subtitles

In the urban music scene of Lima, Peru's capital city, only five percent of musicians are women. Traditionally Peruvian families do not encourage their daughters to seriously pursue music because they consider it to be unfeminine and unstable. Amidst this male-dominated musical environment, a group of professional women have come together to create an all-women percussion ensemble called Parió Paula. Por fin parió Paula reveals how these women are discovering power and creativity through percussion. As they overcome their insecurities about playing music they develop a strong community of women unlike anything they have experienced before.
