Max leaves his lakeside town to live with his father on the fringe of suburban Arizona. Both fever dream and quiet trip, “PAVILION” creates a deep and ethereal world, showing us an innocent way of life coming apart at the seams, constructing an indelible image of the enigma of youth. One of ten films selected for IFP’s 2011 Narrative Lab, “PAVILION” was also selected by the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s 2011 Emerging Visions Workshop. [Synopsis courtesy of SXSW]

Dark Night

Dark Night enigmatically unfolds over the course of a lazy summer day, as it traces the events leading up to a mass shooting in a suburban multiplex. Abandoning the narrative confines of the true crime genre, the story is told through fragmented moments from the lives of several characters, whose fates are tragically intertwined. As the sky grows darker, the placid surface of daily life becomes disturbed by a lurking and inevitable horror. [Synopsis courtesy of Sundance Film Festival]


A strange singer with God-given talent drifts through his adopted city of Memphis with its canopy of ancient oak trees, streets of shattered windows, and aura of burning spirituality. Surrounded by beautiful women, legendary musicians, a stone-cold hustler, a righteous preacher, and a wolf pack of kids, the sweet, yet unstable, performer avoids the recording studio, driven by his own form of self-discovery. His journey quickly drags him from love and happiness right to the edge of another dimension. [Synopsis courtesy of Sundance Film Festival]
