DIRECTOR: Gregory Fish

Steadfast is an encouraging and inspiring film about the Joplin tornado, one of the most destructive in US history. Several residents share their experiences of that fateful day and the days to follow. Through a surge of volunteers and a determined spirit, Joplin has rebuilt in an unprecedented way to now exhibit a higher population and more businesses than before the storm. Steadfast is a heartfelt tribute to the strength and resolve of a community seemingly torn apart by tragedy that rose up to inspire the nation and the world.

ODE TO JOY

odejoy2.jpg
DIRECTOR: Michael Koshkin

93-year-old Naomi Friedman and her elderly friends at Brookdale Galleria in Houston have found an unusual way to fill the long days of their retirement. Banding together to form the Kazoo Ensemble, they delight children in their community with their seriously performed, silly sounding music. Some graduate beyond the ten cent kazoo and attempt elegance in humming, but most members join to give their fleeting days purpose, bringing joy to themselves and those around them. Despite having no obligations, and an encroaching sense of irrelevance, these seniors refuse to quietly fade away.

Sometimes, a crisis helps you to create something extraordinary. Just ask American artist Jim Hall: he thought he was going blind when a case of Shingles marred his vision. But instead of panicking, he started painting the world as he saw it - in all vertical lines. Jim has created a revolutionary new painting style called 'Lineillism.'
