Written & Directed by Céline Sciamma (Portrait of a Lady on Fire)
Starring Joséphine Sanz, Gabrielle Sanz, Nina Meurisse

Céline Sciamma continues to prove herself as one of the most accomplished and unpredictable contemporary French filmmakers with her follow up to PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE, the uniquely emotional, PETITE MAMAN. Following the death of her beloved grandmother, 8-year-old Nelly accompanies her parents to her mother’s childhood home to begin the difficult process of cleaning out its contents. As Nelly explores the house and nearby woods, she is immediately drawn to a neighbor her own age building a treehouse. What follows is a tender tale of childhood grief, memory and connection.

“Petite Maman” is what every film should be: powerfully, even arrestingly original; grounded in emotional truth; hyper-specific; deeply universal; strange; mesmerizing; and not a minute longer than necessary.” Michael O’Sullivan Washington Post

Written & Directed by Lane Nishikawa

Lane Nishikawa’s newest documentary feature film on the internment of the 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans during World War II, and the ten year fight for redress and reparations, that resulted in the signing of H.R. 442, the Civil Liberties Act of 1988. Lane traveled to seven cities and two internment camps, interviewing internees, their children and grandchildren, politicians, community leaders, lawyers, and activists. OUR LOST YEARS takes the audience on a personal, comprehensive, behind-the-scenes journey, exploring the emotional and psychological impact of the evacuation and incarceration, the battle for an apology with its bitter sweet triumph, and the newfound legacy of a battered community becoming a voice of justice for all people.
