“Rapidan: A Journey Down A Virginia River” (4:00pm), Phil Audibert, USA, 3 minutes – A short video set to music showing a pristine river in Virginia from its source to its confluence with the Rappahannock River.
“State Inspection” (4:06pm), David Smith, USA, 8 minutes – An anxious young man tries to talk to a girl he meets while waiting for his car at an auto repair shop.
Bounty Momma “Shakespeare in the Trailer Park” (4:15pm), Wendy Keeling, USA, 11 minutes – The bounty hunting world will never be the same under the watch of hot tempered redneck momma Twyla Sue Dollarhide and her dim witted family. Twyla Sue Dollarhide, aka “Bounty Momma”, is a no-nonsense southern firecracker with a reality show who, despite the incompetence of her gun toting lamebrain family and film crew, proudly boasts that she “always gets her man”! This reality parody brings the viewer inside the day to day of a dysfunctional family business that turns otherwise mundane bounty escapades into mayhem and madness. If Reno 911, The Beverly Hillbillies, and Dog the Bounty Hunter had a love child it would probably be Bounty Momma! This award winning series is sure to get a laugh!!
“Ghosts In The Mountains” (4:28pm), Chris Hite, USA, 19 minutes – Ghosts in the Mountains is about one man’s drive and determination to document, preserve, and popularize Pennsylvania folktales and myths over a thirty year period.
“Walking The Crooked Tune” (4:49pm), Charles Cohen, USA, 28 minutes – Walking the Crooked Tune, a fiddler’s journey out of the past, follows master fiddler Dave Bing as he plays the fire giver of much misunderstood genre known as Old Time. Even under this archaic definition, Dave Bing’s blend of old time stands as an archaic form of ‘crooked tunes’ learned from a family isolated even by West Virginia standards.
“Walking The Crooked Tune” Charles Cohen Q&A (5:18pm)
