*I believe one silver lining of the pandemic is that it has forced us to really introspectively force us to re-examine how we treat others beyond our immediate social circles. Of course, “we didn’t start the fire, it has always been burning since the world’s been turning” as Billy Joel would say. However, when we move beyond the fear induced reactions that media ratings crave from disasters, we look to community to help us cope and persevere. These shorts call attention to ideologies concerning the “Other.” AN

1 Hour 9 Minutes
Saturday June 5, 2021

A British Army PsyOps operative falls out with the intelligence community and is framed for a murder.

Director Statement
I stumbled across the incredible story of Colin Wallace in 2018, the story seemed so outlandish it was hard to believe it could be true. Colin Wallace had worked as a Senior Information Officer in Britain’s Ministry of Defense, in a psychological warfare and propaganda department in Northern Ireland called Information Policy. He claimed to have targeted British politicians and members of the clergy among others in PsyOps and fake news campaigns orchestrated by various elements in Britain’s vast secret state. Colin Wallace had a falling out with sections of the intelligence community after he refused to continue work in areas of PsyOps that he felt were undermining parliamentary democracy. He was subsequently accused of leaking a classified document and made to take voluntary redundancy, he was given the choice between taking voluntary redundancy and keeping his pension or being sacked. He attempted to gain redress by contacting MPs and he engaged with the press. One day he found himself accused of a murder.

Dir. Christopher Hudson  *Director in Attendance!
The Mayberry Effect, is a thought provoking film investigating the topic of nostalgia through the lens of The Andy Griffith Show asking the questions; did a simpler time actually exist, how did the show influence our American culture and society and will future generations continue to enjoy the sitcom or will it fade away like so many other television shows over the past 60 years?

Apocalypse Norway

STALKING CHERNOBYL: exploration after apocalypse—directed by Iara Lee (a Cultures Of Resistance film)—a documentary that examines the underground culture of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. Three decades after the world’s most infamous nuclear disaster, illegal hiking adventurers (known as “stalkers”), extreme sports aficionados, artists, and tour companies have begun to explore anew the mysterious, ghostly landscape, where trees and forest animals have reclaimed land abandoned by villagers. Even as survivors continue to reckon with a dishonest government’s attempts to cover up the extent of the disaster, and as humanity faces new nuclear incidents in place like Fukushima, the Chernobyl site has turned into a bizarre tourist attraction, drawing seekers with a taste for the post-apocalyptic.

Loneliness Shorts- 1 hr 10 min

I think we can all identify with, especially since the quarantine and lockdowns, the feeling of isolation. Those of us that had to endure the pandemic by ourselves can surely appreciate the longing for the company of others, and hopefully never take for granted the human need for community… especially when we face the end of the world….AN
