THE ICS SPRING EDITION SPOTLIGHT:

From Trash to Treasures
Writer/Director: Iara Lee @iara_lee
Genre: Documentary

The ICS is thrilled to screen the trailer for Flown at our Independent Cinema Showcase Spring Edition on Sunday, August 24, 2022 from 3:00-5:30 PM (PST) on @gocyalive!⠀

Synopsis: From erosion to overgrazing to enduring poverty, the people of Lesotho—a highland country surrounded by South Africa—face a variety of difficult challenges. Yet grassroots communities in the country also exhibit tremendous resourcefulness and creativity. In particular, a wealth of artists have mastered a talent for resurrection, developing the skill to creatively turn negatives into positives: Designers who turn discarded trash into beautiful jewelry, clothes, rugs. Filmmakers who turn tragedy into artistic expressions of resilience and compassion. Musicians who write songs to save the environment. In this short, Cultures of Resistance Films profiles a variety of these inventive creators, introducing viewers to a fascinating cast of local residents who are using art as a means of communicating a communal desire for positive change.

To RSVP and purchase a ticket ($20), visit the Linktree in our bio and select - ‘The Summer Showcase’. Guests who post about the showcase event on social media and tag @ICScinemafamily will receive a 50% off discount code! ⠀

The Gogola brothers are currently working on the ‘Gogola Podcast’ and in the process of writing and directing their next science fiction film ‘Chrome Country’. Thank you @gogolabrothers for your support and being part of our ICS family! To see more of their work, check out their website https://gogolabrothers.com/
