SPOTLIGHT ON 2017 FHFF FILMS

Direc­tor: Michele Westmorland

Head­hunt Revis­it­ed: With Brush, Can­vas and Cam­era is a doc­u­men­tary film about Car­o­line Mytinger and the pow­er of art to span oceans and decades. In 1926, Car­o­line Mytinger set out on a four-year adven­ture to the “Land of Head­hunters” in the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea to paint Melanesia’s inhab­i­tants. Eighty years lat­er, her work inspires Amer­i­can pho­tog­ra­ph­er Michele West­mor­land to retrace Caroline’s jour­ney and Papua New Guinean painter Jef­fry Feeger to inter­pret con­tem­po­rary coun­ter­parts of Caroline’s paint­ings. Head­hunt Revis­it­ed con­nects these artists in a sto­ry that is per­son­al and uni­ver­sal, illus­trat­ing how art tran­scends time, genre and geog­ra­phy, con­tin­u­ing to inspire new gen­er­a­tions of artists and non-artists alike about the impor­tance of doc­u­ment­ing cul­ture and tradition.

Screen­ings — Fri­day at 1pm & Sat­ur­day 1pm (Brick­works)

 

SPOTLIGHT ON 2017 FHFF FILMS

Direc­tor: Friedrich Moser

A Good Amer­i­can: Nom­i­nat­ed as best doc­u­men­tary fea­ture at mul­ti­ple film fes­ti­vals, includ­ing fes­ti­vals in Palm Springs, Cleve­land, and Nashville.
An eye-open­ing and deeply dis­turb­ing doc­u­men­tary, A Good Amer­i­can tells the com­plete sto­ry of a ground­break­ing, very sophis­ti­cat­ed sur­veil­lance pro­gram – known as “ThinThread” — that was intend­ed to gath­er data capa­ble of pro­vid­ing clues, in real time, of poten­tial ter­ror­ist threats.
The bril­liant mas­ter­mind behind the program’s devel­op­ment was a cryp­tol­o­gist and long-time Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Agency ana­lyst and Tech­ni­cal Direc­tor, Bill Bin­ney. The sur­veil­lance pro­gram, which was killed off by NSA man­age­ment only weeks pri­or to 9/11, was evi­dent­ly far more effec­tive and inex­pen­sive than the now dis­cred­it­ed pro­grams being pur­sued by the U.S. and Euro­pean Union gov­ern­ments. Accord­ing to the film, built-in safe­guards would have pre­vent­ed the mas­sive sur­veil­lance meth­ods lat­er exposed by Edward Snow­den. So why was this pro­gram killed off? And who was respon­si­ble for the decision?

SPOTLIGHT ON 2017 FHFF FILMMAKERSFORUM

Sun­day, Novem­ber 5 — 9 am to 12 noon

Are you inter­est­ed in hear­ing about how doc­u­men­taries are made?
Have you ever con­sid­ered mak­ing your own documentary?
At the relaxed, infor­mal Film­mak­ers’ Forum, you will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn about the art of film­mak­ing — how films are planned, filmed, and pro­duced – from the peo­ple who made this year’s films. Vis­it­ing film­mak­ers will par­tic­i­pate in a live­ly dis­cus­sion of their expe­ri­ences cre­at­ing the doc­u­men­taries screened at the Festival.
Audi­ence mem­bers are invit­ed to enter the con­ver­sa­tion, ask ques­tions or offer com­ments. To get a peek at what is in store, come meet the film­mak­ers dur­ing the Open­ing Night Gala, where they will be introduced.

SPOTLIGHT ON 2017 FHFF FILMS

Direc­tors: Lou Karsen and Tra­cy Rector

The Maid­en of Decep­tion Pass: Long ago a maid­en named Ko-kwahl-alwoot risked her life to save the Samish peo­ple from star­va­tion. She agreed to mar­ry a man of the sea, who threat­ened to take the plen­ti­ful sea-life away from the area if she did not. Her reluc­tant father demand­ed that she return annu­al­ly. After 4 years, this became difficult.
Today Ko-kwahl-alwoot lives eter­nal­ly under­wa­ter. The film tells her sto­ry about how trib­al his­to­ry inspires gen­er­a­tions of Samish people.

This film will be shown dur­ing the Fri­day Night Gala. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Samish Nation will open this event.

Screen­ings — Fri­day at 7pm (Whit­ti­er-GALA) & Sat­ur­day 4pm (Grange)

SPOTLIGHT ON 2017 FHFF FILMS

Direc­tor: Charles Wilkinson

Van­cou­ver No Fixed Address: The sky­rock­et­ing cost of hous­ing in cities across the world is a much-dis­cussed top­ic these days. No Fixed Address takes an uncom­pro­mis­ing look at the hous­ing cri­sis in Van­cou­ver, B.C., where cit­i­zens are fight­ing to pre­serve homes as liv­ing spaces instead of glob­al finan­cial commodities.

It is also a sto­ry about the very idea of home — what pro­motes or destroys one’s sense of belong­ing — and people’s strug­gle to cope with today’s often threat­en­ing eco­nom­ic and social forces. Van­cou­ver con­sis­tent­ly ranks in the top five of the world’s most desir­able cities in which to live, with its unpar­al­leled nat­ur­al beau­ty, a rel­a­tive­ly clean envi­ron­ment, safe streets, sta­ble insti­tu­tions, and an atti­tude that pri­or­i­tizes lifestyle over work. While it is par­adise for some, oth­ers are forced by high prices to live on the streets or in sub­stan­dard con­di­tions, or strug­gle to hang on to the homes they have.

Screen­ings — Fri­day at 10am (Grange) & Sat­ur­day 4pm (Isle Seat)
