Primary Colours (dir. Derek Price, Canada, 3 minutes) A spoken word piece by Sudanese-Canadian artist Roua Aljied, aka Philosi-fire, about the realities of domestic violence and how each step a woman takes is a new color to paint on the canvas of her life. Nod (dir. Andrew Hunsicker, US, 3 minutes) A short film about the how the human weaknesses of fear, hate, and distrust can be resolved by simple recognition. Nothing Happened (dir. Ted Schneider, US, 23 minutes) At turns comic and reflective, a man recounts his stop-and-frisk arrest and the ripples it made in his life and close relationships, wrestling with how to place what happened to him within the current national dialogue on racial profiling. Lento (dir. B. Stephen Stockwell, US, 9 minutes) In this mood piece, the music of Antonin Dvorak is played by the Philadelphia Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Daniel Spalding. Maestro Spalding is also Music Director of the Capital Philharmonic of New Jersey. Pasquale’s Magic Veal (dir. D.J. Higgins, US, 21 minutes) A dark comedy about a “magic piece of veal” that forces all who eat it to speak the truth. Starring Sopranos actors Vincent Pastore, Dan Grimaldi, and Artie Pasquale, it’s a Sopranos reunion that is anything but Sopranos.
