Somewhere West

Somwhere West is a visually breathtaking road-film that explores the human spirit with emotional breadth and quiet subtlety. After battling with a terminal illness, Ian decides to forgo treatment and head West in search of solitude and a beautiful place to spend his final days. However, despite his best efforts, Ian becomes the center of a makeshift family of troubled, but kind-hearted characters who help him in the redemptive process of letting go, opening his heart, and finally reaching his undetermined destination. Somewhere West is a journey of forgiveness and friendship that travels 3000 miles across some of the most revelatory landscapes in the United States, including Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Somewhere West has received 12 Official Selections from film festivals in 3 countries and has been awarded: WINNER - Best Feature Film at 3 festivals, WINNER - Best Cinematography at 2 festivals, and WINNER - Silver Palm Award from the Mexico International Film Festival. In addition, Somewhere West is Nominated for 6 Awards at the upcoming World Music & Independent Film Festival in Washington DC.. Director David Marek will be in Attendance.

JOSHUA TREE, 1951 - A portrait of James Dean 


Joshua Tree, 1951 is an intimate portrait of James Dean on the cusp of achieving notoriety as both a great actor and an American icon. Set primarily in the early 1950s and focusing on Dean's experiences as an up-and-coming actor in Los Angeles, the film is a series of revealing vignettes that blend biographical and fictionalized elements to present a pivotal moment in a remarkable life.

 Cost of the Living: a Zom Rom Com 

 A live action feature film that is set in a world where the undead  have  risen and can be tamed to live peacefully with humans.  People have  been split between those who support undead  rights and those who  do not. Andrew and Emily, from  either  camp, meet and start to fall in  love, while Brian just  struggles to  fit in. It is a social/political satire,  story of struggle  and a  romantic love story all wrapped into one.
Director Daniel Lee White in attendance
