Small, Beautifully Moving Parts

Sarah Sparks is pregnant and feeling wholly ambivalent, despite her boyfriend’s pure enthusiasm. SMALL, BEAUTIFULLY MOVING PARTS takes a comic and poignant look at one woman’s coming-of-parenthood in the age of technology.

Little Boxes

It’s the summer before 6th grade, and Clark is the new-in-town biracial kid in a sea of white. Discovering that to be cool he needs to act ‘more black,’ he fumbles to meet expectations, while his urban intellectual parents Mack and Gina also strive to adjust to small-town living. Equipped for the many inherent challenges of New York, the tight-knit family are ill prepared for the drastically different set of obstacles that their new community presents, and soon find themselves struggling to understand themselves and each other in this new suburban context.

Claire in Motion

Three weeks after her husband’s sudden disappearance, math professor Claire Hunger believes he could be alive. But just as the police are winding down the search, and her 12-year old son is beginning to grieve, she discovers that Paul had not been behaving like Paul at all. She meets the alluring art student Allison, with whom he was embarking on an elaborate sculpture project. Through her, Claire learns that Paul was stretching in ways that she cannot even begin to imagine, all of which he kept secret. As she loses her grip on who he was, she begins to unravel, questioning her own identity, interrogating her own memories and stumbling toward the unknown. [Synopsis courtesy of SXSW]
