    LAFF | Imaginary Friends, Blanket Tosses, and Diaries: "Dear Lemon Lima," Director Suzi Yoonessi

    When 13-year-old Vanessa experiences her first breakup, she rebounds by following the boy to his stifling prep school, where she receives the only minority scholarship for her Yup’ik background. Landing at the bottom of the school’s social ladder and confined to the weight room during P.E., she begins to rally with the other school misfits, including an animal-loving boy with overbearing parents, a girl named Nothing, and a pathological liar claiming Puff Daddy is her father.

    LAFF | Telling Children's Katrina Stories: "After the Storm" Director Hilla Medalia

    Hilla Medalia’s inspiring documentary, ostensibly about three New York theater vets who come to New Orleans to mount a benefit production of the Broadway musical "Once on this Island," goes right to the eye of the storm. The production, which hauntingly mirrors the real-life events of the hurricane, is fraught with the raw emotions of children struggling to live in a broken-down city. Quickly disabusing any notion that New Orleans’ problems can be fixed with mere wood and nails, the film journeys into the personal family life of each teen cast member. The mesmerizing courage of these young performers speaks volumes about the role art can play...
