GYRL by Anaiis Cisco
The portrait of a pre-teen African American girl struggling with an abusive father.
COMO MINIMO (#YESISTHEMINIMUM) by Single Beige Female aka MICROPIXIE
Como Mínimo is extraterrestrial recording artist Micropixie’s melodic response to glaring misogyny being brushed off as ‘locker room talk’. This video by her human alter ego, Single Beige Female, was released on International Women’s Day, and is both a love letter to consent and SF’s Mission District. Obviously, it features a cast (not to mention crew) of mostly women, but it also shows that men and boys can be part of the solution.

DANNY’S SUPER 8 by Colin Russell & Alec Rodriques
A look into the work of underground filmmaker Danny Plotnick and his love for Super-8 film

FROM BLOOD AND DIRT by Sarah Aineb

RIVER PHOENIX by Travis White

SANKOFA by Vivian Vivas
Filmed in San Cipriano, Colombia
August, 2018 Sankofa is a word in the Twi language of Ghana that translates to “go back and get it”. This 16mm film interprets an exorcism of racism and social repression. Humanity’s passion, pain, and love are revealed through movement, light, and nature. The song “Tonada de Luna” was performed synchronously with the improvisational dance.
SNOW MOUNTAIN by Ed Ntiri
A mother uses her imagination to get her son to fall asleep during their first camping trip.
