Do I Need This?

Do I Need This? is about American excess, and the stuff from which happiness is truly made. This timely film interweaves the filmmaker’s complicated relationship to her possessions with a journey into the homes and minds of her fellow Americans – from a hoarder to a monk and a colorful group of characters in between. On the surface, it”s a joy ride through American consumption habits; at its core, it is a deep reflection on aging, family, and happiness.

Vulveeta

Riot grrrl band VULVEETA didn’t break up on the best of terms. In fact, lead singer Grrrilda Beausoleil disappeared 20 years ago, just as they were about to ”go big.” Now, she has to convince the band she’s ready to rock and overcome the band’s demons. They’ll need to figure out how to integrate Gordon, who’s transitioned since the band’s heyday. Meanwhile, their formerly two-year-old drummer, Killer Child, is eager to chart a new course in her 20s. Most importantly, how will the band be able to draw a crowd in the digital age, in a time far removed from the 1990s marketing methods of wheat paste and stickers?
