New Jersey Film Festival Spring 2012 Screening
Ghost Of Old Highways - Dan Bush (Atlanta, Georgia) This brilliant, surreal short is set against the distorted dreamscape of the Civil War. As a man pursued by an invading army hunts down previous versions of himself amidst the purgatory of a fractured landscape, the film explores the struggle to reconcile with the ghosts of the past. 2011;16 min.
My Left Hand Man - Antonia Bogdanovich (San Jose, California) The Emersons are a theatrical family, of sorts - one son is a street performer who recites Shakespeare while his older brother picks pockets in the crowd. Their father, a has-been thespian, spends the take on booze and ponies. But Samuel wants to make like his comic book hero The Cardinal Comet and split; and a visit from a loan shark gives Samuel a chance at freedom. 2011; 18 min. With an in-person appearance by director Antonia Bogdanovich!
It’s In The Blood – Scooter Downey (Burbank, California) An amazing feature film, which deconstructs the typical "creature feature" by incorporating elements of magical realism and psychological thrillers. Lance Henriksen (Aliens, The Right Stuff) stars in this nightmarish descent into a wilderness that truly must be seen to be believed. 2012; 81min.
