CONSCIENCE POINT

Views from Long Island

2019 | Feature Documentary | English | USA | 75 min.

WORLD PREMIERE

For decades, the home of the Shinnecock Nation has been the subject of a brutal fight for ownership in the Hamptons, with an increased push for real estate development coming to a head against both the safety margin of Long Island’s environmental equilibrium and ties to ancestral homelands throughout the region. Following longtime Shinnecock activist Becky Hill-Genia and those fighting by her side, CONSCIENCE POINT takes a ground-level approach to documenting the almost two-decade-long battle for preservation that has come to encompass not only questions of land ownership, but the moralities of environmental use and income inequality within one of America’s wealthiest zip codes.

Directed by Treva Wurmfeld

THE HOTTEST AUGUST

Air, Land & Sea

2019 | Feature Documentary | English | USA | 94 min.

NYC. August 2017. The summer after the presidential inauguration. A city oppressed by unrelenting heat and the tensions that have been simmering ever since the election. A city that is trying to grapple with growing anxiety over economic insecurity, rising rents, marching white nationalists and ever-present news of natural catastrophes across the country. THE HOTTEST AUGUST, director Brett Story’s latest documentary, is a complex and nuanced portrait of a city and its inhabitants in the age of climate change. Weaving in excerpts from Zadie Smith, Karl Marx, and Annie Dillard, the film offers a hypnotic glimpse into a society on the verge of catastrophe, registering the anxieties, distractions, and survival strategies that preoccupy ordinary lives.

THREE SUMMERS “TRÊS VERÕES”

World Cinema Narrative

2019 | Feature Narrative | Portuguese | Brazil/France | 94 min.

US PREMIERE

Every December, between Christmas and New Year’s, Edgar and Marta host a lavish family celebration at their luxurious summer house by the beach. In 2015 all seems well, despite some tense phone calls and a guest wearing an ankle monitor. In 2016 the annual party is abruptly cancelled. What happens to the invisible people living in the orbit of the rich and powerful when their lives collapse? Through the gaze of an employee and a forgotten elderly father, we see a portrait of contemporary Brazil over three Christmas gatherings, leading up to the tragedy of 2018’s political election. The signs were all there, but we didn’t know how to read them.

Directed by Sandra Kogut
