BARZAN

DIRECTOR: ALEX STONEHILL - WASHINGTON (SEATTLE)

(DOC) To neighbors, Sam “Barzan” Malkandi was the model immigrant and perfect, hard-working family man. To investigators, Malkandi was a cold-blooded terrorist who represented a potential link between Iraq and the 9/11 attacks. To audiences, Malkandi is a mercurial character whose story embodies controversial issues of immigration, xenophobia, and the price of security in the 21st century. Shot both in Iraq and Seattle and featuring haunting sand animation sequences, BARZAN offers an epic geopolitical journey of a family torn apart by suspicion as it examines the opaque government agencies charged with keeping us safe, even at the cost of freedom....

BIBLE QUIZ

DIRECTOR: NICOLE TEENY - WASHINGTON (GIG HARBOR, WA)

(DOC) In Tacoma, Washington, and all over the country, many church groups participate in an annual competition of memorizing and reciting Bible verses and trivia, all in the hopes of making it to a national competition where the best of the best duel it out. With an approaching National Bible Quiz Championship on the horizon, 17-year-old Mikayla and the other members of her Bible quiz group study and practice with unbeatable dedication. But for Mikayla, it is more than just Bible trivia. Her quiz group is an escape from family troubles, a chance at belonging, and the place where she...

EDEN

DIRECTOR: MEGAN GRIFFITHS - WASHINGTON (SEATTLE)

In this electrifying thriller inspired by true events, Jamie Chung (THE HANGOVER, THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS) stars as Hyun Jae, a young Korean-American girl abducted and forced into prostitution by a human and drug trafficking ring. Renamed “Eden” by her kidnappers, she soon learns the only way to survive is to earn the trust of those in charge: Bob Gault, a corrupt US Marshal (Beau Bridges), and his assistant Vaughan (Matt O’Leary), a disturbed young man battling demons of his own. But as Eden’s influence within the operation grows, she must decide just how much of herself she’s...

EMPTY HOLLOW ECHO

DIRECTOR: ADAM SEKULER - WASHINGTON (SEATTLE)

(NAR) A man exits a building and immediately realizes that he doesn’t have his keys. Locked out, he wanders the empty streets alone, noticing everything that had been drowned out by the hustle and bustle of the city by day. An apocalyptic film with no apocalypse, a dystopic vision of man’s physical imprint on space, an architecture film as seen from a night on earth, Sekuler’s character aches for attention and longs to be alone. (74 mins.)

FINDING TRUELOVE

DIRECTOR: SAM KUHN - WASHINGTON (BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, WA)

(DOC) Clay, Michael, and Andrew are fascinated by a yearbook from Chico High’s Class of 1990, which they discover at a Value Village. Intrigued by the cryptic word “caduceus” emblazoned across the cover and by the countless sweet mullets and dream girls inside, the three friends lock onto one particular student: feather-banged mystery man Timothy Truelove. When the guys discover the upcoming Class of 1990’s 20th reunion, they can’t resist the temptation to crash. “This is hands down the most awesome road trip you’ll ever take from Portland to Chico, California! Will they get busted by the Reunion Committee? Will...

DIRECTOR: KEVIN HAMEDANI - WASHINGTON (SEATTLE)

(NAR) Kaveh and Raul are two B-movie co-writers who have suffered a bitter falling out. Kaveh has lost his girlfriend and spends his days getting high, while Raul is across the country studying at Columbia. When word arrives that their all-but-forgotten film, ISLAMA-RAMA 2, has made it into a film festival, the ex-friends are forced to reconnect in order to pitch a new script to the festival’s marquee guest, the mysterious and powerful producer Yukio Tai.

SURVIVAL PRAYER

DIRECTOR: BENJAMIN GREENÉ - WASHINGTON (BELLINGHAM, WA)

(DOC) In the past century in Haida Gwaii (British Columbia’s Queen Charlotte Islands), commercial logging, over-fishing, and invasive species have compromised the availability of traditionally harvested foods and threatened the long-term viability of these practices. Compounding this ecological damage is the imminent extinction of the Haida language and loss of traditional knowledge. Naanii Mary Swanson, a last speaker, frames this portrait of age-old traditions at risk. Against the spectacular Pacific coastline, her ancient words set the tone for detailed views of modern life, in which the labor of survival—cutting seaweed fronds, pulling salmon from nets, plucking young spruce tips—speaks to...

YOU MAKE ME FEEL SO YOUNG

DIRECTOR: ZACH WEINTRAUB - WASHINGTON (OLYMPIA)

(NAR) Weintraub’s third feature exemplifies his intimate filmmaking style, with a minimalism reminiscent of Yasujiro¯ Ozu, Claire Denis, and many other auteurs of world cinema. Justine has uprooted her life to follow her boyfriend Zach as he pursues his own professional opportunities in a new place. Instead of intimacy and bliss, what follows her decision is a sense of alienation from the very man she sets out to join. As Zach’s work pressures mount, their relationship develops rifts, and Justine begins to explore her own creative endeavors. Structured as much by the information we are denied access to as it...
