Don’t Call Me Son + Anchovies

Director: Anna Muylaert
2016 - Narrative - Brazil - 82 Minutes - Unrated - English Subtitles

June 3 @ 8:00 pm

With a light touch for heavy topics, Brazilian filmmaker Anna Muylaert looks at an unusual family configuration—the true story of Pierre, who at age 17 learns that his adoptive mother had in fact stole him, landing her in prison and Pierre with the biological family who spent years tracking him down. What follows is the tale of an androgynous young man robbed of his identity just as he is about to find himself, while a perceptive camera carefully tracks how pent-up emotions slowly turn into rage and rebellion. Portuguese with English Subtitles

Anchovies

(2016), directed by Craig Harwood, 17 minutes, Narrative, Unrated (family friendly), USA

Vern, a genderqueer teen, is not happy. He’s grieving the loss of his mother and is not thrilled about spending the day with his father’s new girlfriend. Samantha’s a health freak and Vern’s not having it—no omega-3 fatty acids, yoga asanas, or walks on the beach. Can they find middle ground? Winner of the Grand Prize for Short Script at the 2015 Hollywood Screenplay Contest.
