Little Sister

Directed by Zach Clark
With Addison Timlin, Ally Sheedy, Keith Poulson, Peter Hedges
2016, 91min

 

“Fail to see the tragic, turn it into magic!”—Marilyn Manson. Zach Clark’s (White Reindeer, BAMcinemaFest 2013) fifth feature is an insightful, oddball exploration of family and trauma set during the run-up to the 2008 presidential election. Ex-goth-girl-turned-nun Colleen (Timlin) returns to her childhood home in North Carolina to reconnect with her recently-disfigured military vet brother (Poulson). Though she uprights the cross above her bed upon arrival, her teenage feelings of angst and alienation soon resurface. GWAR dance sessions, awkward mother-daughter conversations (featuring a wildly entertaining Ally Sheedy), and drug-fueled Halloween parties ensue over the course of her visit. Clark “pleasingly meshes a scuzzy digital aesthetic with dreamy pop-art intrusions” (Variety), resulting in a feel-good trip about despair, joy, and everything in between.

 
Chekhov

Directed by Jack Dunphy
With Jack Dunphy, Ruby Dunphy, Fiona Robert
2015, 5min

 

A secretly recorded phone conversation between the director and his sister, laced with bitter honesty, familial messiness, and complex affections that only siblings can provide.
