Jeffie Was Here 109 min - LA Premiere
When his Nana dies, tightly-wound professor Alan and his better-half Amanda must post an internet ad at the university to find a student who will share the costs of the emergency cross-country trip. Enter Jeffie: an inflammatory individual who fancies himself a scholar, a poet, and the embodiment of enlightened living. At first, the couple's travel companion seems to have responded randomly to their ad, but as the trip progresses, it becomes clear that Jeffie's presence relates to a web of tightly-held secrets between Alan and Amanda. Amidst infidelity, blackmail, run-ins with the law, and a painfully bad demo tape, the ride with Jeffie is unpredictable at every turn and by journey's end no one is left unchanged.

From the producers of Who Killed the Electric Car and I.O.U.S.A., this timely documentary is a behind-the-scenes look into the unregulated and unseen world of an industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never to become a commodity: our water. From the plastic production to the ocean in which so many of these bottles end up, this inspiring documentary trails the path of the bottled water industry and the communities which were the unwitting chips on the table. A powerful portrait of the lives affected by the bottled water industry, this revelatory film features those caught at the intersection of big business and the public's right to water

Divorcing God 68 min - LA Premiere

Prior to their wedding, Gil and Sydney said and did everything right. Both devout Christians with a desire to spread God’s message, their idea of marriage was perfectly aligned with what the bible says it should be; a life-long union in which she was to respect and submit, and he was to love her as Jesus loves the church. However, when shortly after the wedding Sidney moved out and filed for legal separation, Gil was not only left emotionally devastated, but also on the road to facing the hardest year of his life. “Divorcing God” is one couple’s story of love, marriage, and what happens when the realities of modern day life collide with the biblical ideals by which some 174 million Americans are trying to live their lives.
