    Meet the 2011 ND/NF Filmmakers: "El Velador" Director Natalia Almada

    Through the eyes of the night watchman, we enter into the world of “El Jardin,” a cemetery in the drug heartland of Mexico. Since the war on drugs began in 2007, the cemetery has doubled in size and some of its mausoleums have been built to resemble gaudy cathedrals, creating a skyline that looks like a fantastical surrealist city more than a resting place for the deceased. Through her quiet, observational style, Natalia Almada ("The General") introduces us to both the lives of the cemetery workers and the families of the victims; here, the guilty and the innocent, the powerful and the powerless, intersect in the shadow of an increasingly blo...

JC Chandor’s timely and terrifying dramatic exposé tackles twenty-four hours on an investment bank trading floor; a day that brings layer upon layer of human and professional malfeasance that jeopardizes the entire fabric of the banking system. This is a system sustained and sequestered by corporate security guards, convoluted mathematic formulas, and, of course, greed. An all-star ensemble cast—led by Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Zachary Quinto, Demi Moore, Stanley Tucci an...

    In 1987 two dudes from the Midwest, Eddie Lee Sausage and Mitchell D, landed in San Francisco and rented a cheap apartment. They soon learned that they shared a paper-thin wall with Peter (Haskett), a gay man, and Raymond (Huffman), a homophobe, who drank and verbally abused each other—all night, ev...
