UNBECOMING (dir, Chris White)
A retired U.S. senator with a dark secret, an in-school suspension teacher and his captive audience of one, two lost souls’ unlikely meeting at a roadside diner, the stomach-churning memory of True Love lost, and a father’s last will and testament passed on via workshop mix tape feature in this 5-film, comic anthology on the nature of personal devolution and change—with a decidedly Southern gothic twist.

MOUSSE (dir. John Hellberg)
What could be easier than robbing a small bookie place on the outskirts of town? It’s during the year’s biggest horse race event and the betting center Washington’s Tobacco looks like the ultimate hit for some fast cash. Mousse is a man of pride and principles and is fed up with living as a second-class citizen. But what happens when he faces principles different to his own?

The show starts at 7pm, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.
