The Films


BAGATELLE (29:50 min.)
Daniel Levin - Houston, TX
A Russian cellist is stranded in Texas countryside as she tries to reconcile everyday life and her commitment to art.

BOXER STORY (20:00 min.)
Lance Myers - Austin, TX
Amateur boxer, Twomey Martin, suffers from a rare and absurd affliction: the sound of each punch to his face is audible as a one-liner joke. And even though he dreams of one day becoming a serious contender in a title fight, all anyone ever hears are the 'punch lines.'

GOPHERIT (12:00 min.)
Bryan Poyser - Austin, TX
A freelancer working for a job-matching website gets hired to help a dominatrix with her invoices but finds out there's more to the job than he thought.

I AM MACKENZIE (19:43 min.)
Artemis Anastasiadou - Austin, TX
Caught among toxic masculinity, a sequin dress and a teenage crush, a teen skater, growing up in rural Texas, will have sex for the first time in the back of their dad’s truck.

Travis Lee Ratcliff - Austin, TX
A portrait of the sculptor, Dony Mac Manus, who has rejected much of contemporary art in favor of a return to the ideals of the renaissance. Dony's life and work raises questions about our experience of time and history. How do we navigate the past, tradition, and form our identity in the present in response to these forces?
