Krisha
Directed by Trey Edward Shults
With Krisha Fairchild, Bryan Casserly, Billie Fairchild
2015, 83min
When free-spirited Krisha (Fairchild, director Shults’ real-life aunt) returns to Texas for a holiday gathering, it doesn’t take long for tensions to mount and nerves to unravel in this dizzying portrait of a woman—and family—on the verge. A deeply personal debut feature, simmering with bravado camerawork (echoing Shults’ mentor Terence Malick), a propulsive score, and breakout performances from a largely nonprofessional cast, Krisha announces a remarkable new talent in homegrown independent cinema. Winner of the Grand Jury and Audience Awards at SXSW.

Porcupine
Directed by Sam Fleischner, Iva Gocheva
2015, 8min
On a gorgeous summer day, a woman tries to reclaim lost love via voicemail while pacing around her sun-drenched apartment.

This screening will feature a Q&A with Krisha director Trey Edward Shults.
