THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST (US Dramatic Competition) shot by Ashley Connor
...
Cameron Post (Chloë Grace Moretz) looks the part of a perfect high school girl. But after she’s caught with another girl in the back seat of a car on prom night, Cameron is quickly shipped off to a conversion therapy center that treats teens “struggling with same-sex attraction.” At the facility, Cameron is subjected to outlandish discipline, dubious “de-gaying” methods, and earnest Christian rock songs—but this unusual setting also provides her with an unlikely gay community. For the first time, Cameron connects with peers, and she’s able to find her place among fellow outcasts.
.
Writer/director Desiree Akhavan (Appropriate Behavior) and co-writer Cecilia Frugiuele sensitively adapt Emily Danforth’s acclaimed eponymous coming-of-age novel and create a refreshingly original teen movie. Balancing out inherent drama with understated humor, The Miseducation of Cameron Post looks at a teenage girl grappling with pain and loss, but at the same time, she is creating a family on her own terms and learning what it means to empower herself by having confidence in her own identity.

Akhavan received a BA from Smith College and an MFA from NYU.

GENERATION WEALTH (Documentary Premieres) co-DPd by Shana Hagan
...
Over the past 25 years, Lauren Greenfield's documentary photography and film projects have explored youth culture, gender, body image, and affluence. In this fascinating meld of career retrospective and film essay, Greenfield offers a meditation on her extensive body of work, structuring it through the lens of materialism and its increasing sway on culture and society in America and throughout the world. Underscoring the ever-increasing gap between the haves and the have-nots, her portraits reveal a focus on cultivating image over substance, where subjects unable to attain actual wealth instead settle for its trappings, no matter their ability to pay for it.
From her earliest photo studies on the seemingly privileged lives of Los Angeles high school students, through her look at the pitfalls of extreme wealth in The Queen of Versailles (Directing Award: U.S. Documentary, 2012 Sundance Film Festival), to more recent images of conspicuous consumption in Russia and China, Greenfield's work becomes a cautionary morality tale about our unquenchable desire for more.

Lauren Greenfield
Award-winning photographer/filmmaker Lauren Greenfield chronicles youth, gender, and consumerism through monographs (Girl Culture, Fast Forward, Thin) and documentaries (Thin, kids+money, The Queen of Versailles). The Queen of Versailles won her the U.S. Documentary Directing Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, and her Emmy-winning "#LikeAGirl" video put her at the top of the chart for the 2015 AdAge Awards Report's most awarded director.

The long anticipated WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR (Documentary Premieres) with Additional Photography by Shana Hagan
...
With his gentle voice and heartfelt words of wisdom, Fred Rogers served as a compassionate surrogate father for generations of American children who tuned in to public television. He believed in love as the essential ingredient in life and was able to assist kids through difficult situations armed merely with handmade puppets suggesting tolerance and acceptance. An ordained Presbyterian minister, Mr. Rogers made speaking directly and openly to children his life’s work, both on and off his long-running show. He was at the forefront of a movement devoted to meeting the specific needs of children and was considered a radical back then for saying, “I like you just the way you are.”
.
Animated sequences are peppered between archival footage of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and interviews with Fred Rogers’s family, friends, and colleagues. Examining Rogers’s legacy, Academy Award–winning director Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom) offers a deliberate and beautiful tribute to an authentic human being and provides a much-needed salve for these often-fraught times.

NEVER GOIN’ BACK (Midnight Feature Films) lensed by CXX NuWave member Greta Zozula
...
BFFs Angela (Maia Mitchell) and Jessie (Cami Morrone) are high school dropouts working dead-end waitressing jobs in the same sh*tty diner. Their dream vacation to sunny Galveston, Texas, is only a few shifts away. But after a drug deal goes bad and their home is invaded—and they have to serve a short stint in juvenile detention—their beach trip is in serious jeopardy. They’ll have to use every bit of guile their perpetually buzzed teenage brains can muster as they try to get (relatively) rich quick while wandering suburban Dallas.
Augustine Frizzell directs her scrappy debut feature with infectious energy and style. Co-stars Mitchell and Morrone imbue Angela and Jessie with such gonzo charm and stoned drive that it’s impossible not to root for them, no matter how misguided their scheme may be. An eclectic supporting cast, featuring Saturday Night Live’s Kyle Mooney as the girls’ weirdo housemate, shines as they bounce around suburban purgatory in search of cash. Never Goin’ Back is an engaging shaggy-dog crime story for the Snapchat generation.

THIS IS HOME (World Doc Competition)shot by #LaelaKilbourn

Only 21,000 Syrian refugees out of five million have been accepted into the United States since 2011. This is Home follows four families sent to resettle in Baltimore in 2016. They have just eight months to find jobs, learn English, and become self-sufficient. The clock starts right when they land. Despite good intentions, a vast cultural divide prevents the new arrivals and the Americans trying to help them from truly understanding each other. For Syrians like Khaldoun, who was tortured and left physically disabled, and children like Mohammad, who suffers from PTSD, their needs extend far beyond lessons in proper job attire.
Halfway through the process, President Trump issues a travel ban on all refugees from Muslim-majority countries, and suddenly their lives, and the safety of loved ones still trapped in Syria, become all the more perilous. With much-needed empathy, filmmaker Alexandra Shiva reveals the inherent decency of a displaced community desperate for help within a country increasingly hostile to principles of inclusion and opportunity.

.
After a long separation, two sisters are forced to come together. When the man that once got between them reappears, a triangle emerges and they find themselves in a similar place as they were years before: suffocating, infuriating, and incredibly familiar. Home. Writer/director Diaz Jacobs unfurls this unconventional family drama in the premiere of the pilot episode.

Diaz Jacobs’s first language is Spanish. Her long-felt connection to film initially drew her in as an actress, producer, and co-editor of the micro-budget film The GoodTimesKid. While working as a costume designer for the acclaimed movies Smashed and Chronic and the show Doll & Em, she developed as a writer and then as a director of multiple short films. Cherries is inspired by the show Tom and Jerry and is the story she must tell.

A new HBO nonfiction series inspired by the eponymous feminist newsletter from Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, Lenny covers current events, pop culture moments, and everything in between to connect with women of every shape, size, mindset, religion, and aspiration. Each episode features a collection of short-subject films unified around a theme. The six pieces comprising the pilot, “Women in Pursuit,” pulse with provocative experiences and surprising lenses, gleefully delving into sex, work, identity, and death.
.
In the short “Orgasmic Meditation,” women heal from trauma through assisted, hyper-conscious orgasm. “Danger Women at Work!” contemplates sexual harassment through vintage videos. Exploring how community forms in gender-segregated spaces, “J’Adore Nawal” joins a group of Muslim women in a suburban Illinois hair salon. In “Dead Is Better,” a writer investigates the thing she most fears. A high school girl turns to a computer game to take control of her life in the animated “Laws of Another Universe” (adapted directly from a Lenny newsletter essay). Finally, in “Funny Girls,” high schoolers at Second City Comedy Camp lay bare personal struggles to locate the funny girls within.
