Living alone in a house on the edge of Puget Sound, Ian grapples with long-held grief and shame over the loss of Liv, a woman he loved dearly who died nearly two decades ago. As he moves though the world he’s created with visions and fantasies of their life together, he’s pulled further and further away from the present. Liv’s sister Beth, a woman with ghosts of her own, is the first to see how far Ian has slipped away from reality. Their chance run-in begins a spiral which ultimately forces Ian to choose… lose himself completely or turn towards healing.

Fair Play – Aug 5 – 04:00PM – Redfield Auditorium

Fair Play

The unequal gendered division of labor in the home has long existed, with modern living only exacerbating the stress-filled dynamic between parenthood and work. With the global pandemic forcing millions of women out of the workforce, Fair Play follows four different families on their journey to better balance care work at home, illustrating how we aren’t really fighting about dishes in the sink, but much bigger societal problems. Ultimately, Fair Play makes visible the invisible care work historically held by women and inspires a more balanced and equitable future for all.

Following the screening Olivia Morgan will moderate a discussion with Jen Newsom and Lucia Small (Girl Talk). Sponsored by Women and Film and Video New England.

A Woman on the Outside – Aug 5 – 06:15PM – Redfield Auditorium

A Woman on the Outside

Kristal Bush grew up in Philadelphia watching nearly every man in her life disappear to prison. She channeled that struggle into keeping families connected as a social worker and through her van service that transports riders – mostly women – to visit partners, fathers and sons in faraway prisons. But when Kristal’s father and brother come home after decades behind bars, she confronts what it means to piece her own family back together, and create a different future for her young nephew, Nyvae. Weaving intimate vérité scenes with Kristal’s own videos, A WOMAN ON THE OUTSIDE is a tender portrait of one family striving to love in the face of a system built to break them.
