Three Filmmakers One Theme
F&V MFA candidates and alum Thavary Krouch, Timmy Tamisiea and Mario Contreras (MFA '12) screen their thesis films at "On the Mend" Film Festival, Saturday, March 2, 2013
The Pig & Weasel will host the film festival along with a curated art exhibit dealing with the central theme of confronting one's past:
Black Ink on Rice Paper, by Thavary Krouch (15 mins). This short documentary highlights the art of Linda Saphan, exploring how Saphan's works bridge the gap between one generation of Cambodians who survived genocide under the Khmer Rouge and another generation that doesn't understand the pain they went through.
Familia Bom Brill, by Mario Contreras (20 mins). Diana Gabriel's jaded views on family and marriage get in the way of her ongoing courtship until she reconnects with her estranged mother after 16 years of separation.
(Super) Dan, by Timmy Tamisiea (20 mins). Floating in arrested development and facing daily ridicule, an awkward nerd turns to an unlikely companion to help him confront his greatest fear: letting go.
