Music Video:  Poor Heart 
directed by Ben Phillippo

Beware the song of the siren... The spirit of an earlier era is awakened in this haunting music video. Exploring singer/songwriter Cara Campanelli's vintage sound, 'Poor Heart' is an eerie journey into the shadows.
RT: 3 min.



Short Film: Bookin'
directed by John Kirkscey

Bookin' documents the collaboration of two break-dancers/"jookers" and two ballet dancers creating original choreography to a new and original soundtrack that mixes hip-hop beats and cello. The goal of the film was to fuse jookin', an original Memphis break-dancing style dubbed the "urban ballet," with classical ballet in order to highlight the benefits of cultural mixing.
RT: 14 min.

Feature Film: Before the Spring: After the Fall
directed by Jed Rothstein

Three years before the Arab Spring, the filmmakers traveled to Egypt to film with young rock musicians fighting for free expression. They met a young singer whose family was already risking everything in a fight that would become a revolution, and change the course of history.

Shady Ayman Nour, Jed Rothstein the Director and the Producers of the film will be on-hand at the screening to answer questions.
RT: 75 min.

Q&A will follow screenings
