A program showcasing the work of several provocative new talents. A water delivery truck driver in South Central L.A. uncovers a plot to privatize the city’s dwindling resources during a prolonged drought in Ashtong’s Where the Water Runs. GIVE, by De Rozas, shows a senior Reverend seeking to preserve his legacy building an alternative visual narrative for the black community before his impending retirement. Monroe’s Black 14 uses archival material to tell the story of fourteen black student athletes who were dismissed from the University of Wyoming's football team in 1969 for taking a stance against racial harassment and discrimination in the Mormon church. Webster’s experimental documentary Respect and Love is a tribute to the first African-American woman to sue the Catholic Church for sexual abuse thirty years ago, and a colloquy between the filmmaker and her mother. Into My Life pays a moving tribute to the work of one mother-daughter duo, the community present in Lindsay Park, the largest affordable housing cooperative in Brooklyn, and the power of creative self-representation.
