US PREMIERE
(USA, 104 min)

Writer: Stanley Kalu

Tunde Johnson should be happy, but there is emptiness, a sorrow inside of him he just can’t shake. He is

deeply in love with Soren, his closeted boyfriend who is the captain of the Lacrosse team.

Tunde lives day in, day out, as Soren’s dark secret, as he is forced to deceive Marley and live in the shadows of her relationship with Soren. Prescription pills are his only way to cope and get through the day.

After coming out to his own parents, Tunde makes his way to Soren’s birthday party, with the goal of
convincing Soren to finally come out his conservative pundit father. However, before he arrives, Tunde is pulled over by the police and shot to death. He immediately awakens and is forced to live in a brutal time loop.

and forgiveness, as these two very different men confront their pasts in order to

HONEY BOY.jpg

(USA, 93 min)

Writer: Shia LaBeouf
Director: Alma Har’el
Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Lucas Hedges, Noah Jupe, FKA Twigs

From a screenplay by Shia LaBeouf, based on his own experiences, award-winning
filmmaker Alma Har’el (Bombay Beach, LoveTrue) brings to life a young actor’s
stormy childhood and early adult years as he struggles to reconcile with his
father and deal with his mental health. Fictionalizing his ascent to stardom, and
subsequent crash-landing into rehab and recovery, Har’el casts Noah Jupe (A
Quiet Place) and Lucas Hedges (Boy Erased, Manchester by the Sea) as Otis Lort,
navigating different stages in a frenetic career. LaBeouf takes on the therapeutic
challenge of playing a version of his own father, an ex-rodeo clown and a felon.
Dancer-singer FKA twigs makes her feature-film debut, playing neighbor and
kindred spirit to the younger Otis in their garden-court motel home. Har’el’s feature
narrative debut is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between filmmaker and subject,
exploring art as medicine and imagination as hope through the life and times of a
talented, traumatized performer who dares to go in search of himself.

Just Mercy - CLOSING NIGHT FILM

JUST MERCY.jpg

Writer(s): Destin Daniel Cretton (screenplay); Andrew Lanham (screenplay)(in attendance); Bryan Stevenson (book)
Director: Destin Daniel Cretton
Cast: Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, Rob Morgan, Tim Blake Nelson (in attendance), Rafe Spall, O’Shea Jackson Jr., and Brie Larson

A powerful and thought-provoking true story, “Just Mercy” follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or who were not afforded proper representation, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Larson). One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx), who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds—and the system—stacked against them.
