An American in Texas

Directed by Anthony Pedone

An angry, crackling and defiantly disordered underclass of nowheresville punk-rock kids, see their band Surgeon General’s Warning (SGW) as their ticket out of small town Texas, as 1990 comes to a close. The band drops acid, plays gigs and carries out calculated acts of vandalism around town to the television soundtrack of 24-hour newscasts about Operation Desert Storm and devotion to country at any cost. Faced with the reality of a dead end job at the plastic plant like their parents, a life in the oil field, or fighting a war that has no meaning to them, the group's chaos and imminent adulthood leaves them completely vulnerable for what ensues.

Eyes of the Moon 

Directed by Bryn McCay

our vision is to create a filmic world in which to explore divine femininity and the quest for forgotten wisdom.  this is a collaboration between writers, visionaries, story tellers, visual art makers, performers, costumers, sculptors, music makers, adventurers, dreamers and doers.  this is a psychedelic gypsy caravan. in this world we are free to do whatever we want.  with no limits.  with eyes of beauty.  with a feminine voice that doesn't cater to the world as it IS but to the world that IS our creative minds.  this world is rooted in love, in infinite and ever-changing possibility, in the manifestation of abundance and balance, in connection with the earth, with the guidance of our ancestors, our dreams, and our subconscious.
