Synopsis: Available June 14th Only!

Two short films by Garrett Bradley, winner of the AIFF2020 James Blue Award, will be featured in this program. America(2019, 30 min.) was inspired by the recent discovery of the earliest surviving footage for a feature film Lime Kiln Club Field Day, made in 1913 by an interracial cast and crew for a Black audience. In the first quarter of the 20th century, 100 years ago, Black people and white people made films together with Black casts and narratives of joy. Alone(2017, 12 min.), winner of the jury award for short nonfiction film at Sundance, is about Bradley’s friend Aloné Watts. Her name holds a bitter aptness, because it describes her own ongoing isolation because of her partner’s incarceration. Aloné’s boyfriend, Desmond Watson, was arrested in October 2015 on a series of nonviolent charges. He has been in a private prison near their home in New Orleans ever since, in personal and legal limbo as he awaits a trial.
