Personal Vision

  1. Bent

    Amy Jo Johnson / Narrative, Shorts, US Cinema / Canada / 2012 / Children, Music, Personal Vision, Woman Filmmaker, Women / 20 mins
    Growing up in a religious cult, Jackie and Amelia, now in their late thirties, meet up once a year at Amelia's mother's grave to reconnect and talk about life. 'Are we broken?' they ask themselves, only to decide after a topless escapade through their old sect, that they are only bent. Bent is a short film about those life long friendships that thankfully keep us feeling normal. Actress, singer, songwriter, musician and gymnast Amy Jo Johnson (the Pink Ranger in “Power Rangers,” “Felicity”) directs and acts from her own script.)

    Special Guest Amy Jo Johnson will sing and play her original songs at the show.

  3. Karakara

    Claude Gagnon / International, Narrative / Canada, Japan / 2012 / Art, Asian, Cultural, Folklore, Personal Vision, Spirituality, Transformation, Vision Quest / 101 mins
    Pierre, a retired professor in his early sixties who ends up making a short, unsettling trip around Okinawa with Junko, a 40-year-old runaway wife. The confused intellectual would rather not get involved with this unlikely and unexpected lover but decides to follow his destiny, wherever it (or she) may take him. Director Claude Gagnon who also wrote the script, was able to effectively combine elements of existential doubt, romance, a spiritual quest, admiration for traditional handcrafts and a good dose of humour.
