SYNOPSIS A stunning observational short documentary about youth, music and collective trauma set in Naples, Italy, and filmed over two years, Teranga - Life in the Waiting room vividly humanizes West African migrants living in Europe. The film depicts asylum seekers as rarely seen before, as they figure out how to fill the time while they wait endlessly for notice on their documents. Unable to work and with their lives on hold for years, they find ways to keep themselves feeling alive by relying on music as a crucial tool for resistance, survival and integration. https://vimeo.com/344283557 ONLINE AVAILABILITY Dates: Thursday,…

Adams
27 Jul, 2020. 0 Comments. . Posted By: Gorilla Web
SYNOPSIS Based on a short story by Man Booker Prize-winning author George Saunders, Adams is a very dark comedy starring Patton Oswalt and Fred Armisen. Oswalt plays Roger, a regular guy who's always been suspicious of Adams (Armisen), his pretentious next-door neighbor. One day Roger comes home to find Adams standing in his kitchen in his underwear. The allegorical conflict that ensues explores themes like fear of the other and anti-intellectualism that are very much of the moment in America today. https://vimeo.com/436268517 ONLINE AVAILABILITY Dates: Thursday, August 27 - Thursday, September 3 Time: All hours Access to the film: Fest…
