Hypocrite (US 2002 12mim) David Chalker
A controversial short film about a woman who is being stalked by a faceless unknown character. Shot from the stalker’s POV, supported by a brilliant hip-hop soundtrack and compelling score, the audience is pushed into the seat as the Hypocrite. Winner of the San Francisco International Film Festival’s “Gate Award” and Most Innovative Short at the Tiburon International Film Festival “Prepare to have you ass thoroughly kicked as an angry protagonist knocks you out of viewer apathy and passive consumption. A thought-provoking piece that puts you on a swooping, spinning ride of enlightenment. This is a definite must-see for everyone intrigued by film theory and the voyeuristic politics of our film like gaze”

Cubamore (Cuba/US 2001 115min) Joshua Bee Alafia
Cubamor is a story of love, mysticism and self discovery set in Havana, Cuba, 2000. The story follows two encounters of love between Americans and Cubans, and though the characters do not know each other, they often share the same settings, and live in the same neighborhood. Direct from the Cuban hip-hop Underground, cubamor brings us into a colorful, mystical world where love knows no borders. Mixing magical realism surreally, and cinema verite’ immediacy, cubamor finds the earthy in the ethereal, sincerity among the world of hustlers, and searches the hearts of our protagonists for love of strangers.
