SEA FOG
Directed by Sung-bo Shim
YEAR 14 FILM 5
Kang, a long time captain of the Junjin, is disheartened to learn that his ship has been sold by its owner, leaving Kang's entire crew in danger of losing their livelihood. Swallowing his pride, Kang pays a visit to Yeo, a human trafficking broker, and decides to take on the dangerous job of smuggling illegal migrants into South Korea. When the Junjin arrives at the pickup point, a violent storm forces the boat to stall in the open waters, inevitably pitting Kang's crew against the migrants.

MAD TIGER
Directed by Jonathan Yi and Michael Haertlein
YEAR 14 FILM 6
MAD TIGER follows bandmates Yellow (Kengo Hioki) and Red (Kotaro Tsukada), who have been best friends and business partners for fifteen years as the primary creative forces behind Peelander-Z. Based in New York City and described as a "Japanese Action Comic Punk Band," Peelander-Z combines performance-art and audience participation in their shows, which push the boundaries of madcap acrobatic stage antics. As part of the band, each member must adopt a different, anime-like "Crayola rock" persona and fully embrace this assigned identity in every aspect of life. Seeking his own personal fulfillment, Red announces that he will do one final tour with Peelander-Z before quitting the band. In stark contrast to his character's super-positive facade, Yellow tries his best to keep it together, while dealing with emotions of shock, betrayal and abandonment. Channeling universal stories of friendship and pursuit of happiness, MAD TIGER builds to an unexpectedly moving crescendo, appropriately befitting of Peelander-Z's cacophonous melody-making.

TAKE ME TO THE RIVER
Directed by Matt Sobel
YEAR 14 FILM 7
Sobel's assured directorial debut is the story of Ryder, an artsy, confident California teen who is heading to Nebraska for a family reunion. After planning to come out to his conservative relatives, he holds off at his mother's request but nevertheless makes a showy entrance at the cookout with his short shorts and his eye-catching shades. No one seems particularly impressed except his 9-year old cousin Molly, who likes to follow him around. When they go to the barn to look for birds in the rafters and she comes back screaming and inconsolable, Ryder comes under suspicion and, in the process of clearing his name, learns that some family secrets are sometimes better kept that way.

HOCKNEY
Directed by Randall Wright
YEAR 14 FILM 8
Hockney weaves together a portrait of the multifaceted artist from frank interviews with close friends and never before seen footage from his own personal archive. One of the great surviving icons of the 1960s, Hockney's career may have started with almost instant success but in private he has struggled with his art, relationships, and the tragedy of AIDS, making his optimism and sense of adventure truly uplifting. Hockney is funny, inspiring, bold and visionary.

MEN GO TO BATTLE
Directed by Zachary Treitz
YEAR 14 FILM 10
Most Americans predict that the Civil War will end by Christmas, but Henry (Tim Morton) and Francis Mellon (David Maloney) couldn't care less. Bracing for another winter on their struggling farm in rural Kentucky, the brothers have become suffocatingly close. Francis' practical jokes become more and more aggressive until the night he accidentally injures Henry in a drunken fight. After humiliating himself in front of a daughter (Rachel Korine) of the town's preeminent family, Henry disappears in the night. Months later, Francis learns that Henry has joined the Union army, and the two are left to find out separately what the approaching war will bring.
