the homefront
god bless the child
Years into the invasion of the United States, a family stays at
home. The Mom and Dad stretch rations as far as they can.
The son sits in his room and talks to his radio girlfriend. The
daughter plays alone. Their only visitor is a strange old general
who barters for their belongings with ration cards. A decade
inside the house, their conversations have become limited.
They change the radio dial when the war comes up, but a
dead rat, a lack of cherry bombs, and a missing picture frame
threaten to tear the family apart. Unannounced, their uncle
arrives with two suitcases and the oncoming rumblings of
enemy soldiers.
Harper, thirteen, is put in a situation to care for her four
younger brothers: Elias, the wild one, Arri, the sensitive one,
Ezra, the strong one and Jonah, the baby. What should be just
a normal day for five kids turns into one of fantasy and chaos.
The film starts with the mother driving off at dawn. The eldest
discovers a letter from her saying she cannot handle things
anymore and won’t be coming back. Harper goes through the
day looking after the boys, being the the big sister but also
being a teenager herself. Her brothers get up to all sorts of
antics but the bond between all five of them grows stronger
with each passing hour. Harper knows the mother is probably
not going to return, but for the most part the boys do not and
the weight of her absence hangs heavy over the story, like
depression itself.
Fidel Ruiz-Healy is a Mexican-American writer, cinematographer and
director. He grew up in Texas not knowing who to root for when learning
about the Alamo and with a strong fear of guns. He relocated to New York
to study at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts where he founded The American
Standard Film Co. with Tyler Walker and Jordan Michael Blake.
Tyler Walker is a director and writer from Pipersville, Pennsylvania.
Named after president John Tyler, he studied filmmaking at NYU’s Tisch
School of the Arts. He subsists mainly off John Ford films and single-malt
scotch, despite this he’s a committed leftist.
director’s statement:
The Homefront is a parody – the nuclear family forced under occupation.
It’s an American Nightmare: locked in a house with your family for years,
running out of things to say. We wrote the film in a 14th street diner
with war coverage on mute behind us and Buddy Holly humming from
a jukebox. A guy waddled in and said “What is this shit?! Put on the
Yankees!” And like that, war abroad became a national pastime. The
Homefront is about not being able to change the channel, but trying
The American Standard Film Co.
was founded by NYU alumni Jordan Michael Blake, Fidel
Ruiz-Healy & Tyler Walker. Their films have screened at
festivals around the world, including Raindance, Austin
Film Festival and Oaxaca. They are a Brooklyn based
production company specializing in producing unique,

company came out of them working together over the
past six years, and in that time have produced over 80
films ranging from short narrative, short documentary, and
short experimental. as gone on to play major film festivals
around the world, such as Sundance Film Festival, BFI
London, Los Angeles Film Festival and Locarno.
Robert Machoian and Rodrigo Ojeda Beck have been making
films over the past five years by any means possible. Their second short
film, Charlie and the Rabbit premiered at the Sundance Film festival
in 2010. Three years later, they returned to Sundance with two short
films. Their feature, Forty Years From Yesterday premiered at the LA
and Locarno Film Festivals in 2013. Robert and Rodrigo were chosen for
Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 new faces in 2010.
directors’ statement:
Robert wanted to tell the story of his depressed grandmother, who
apparently would often abandon her five children. While many films look
at depression from the adult’s point of view, few look at it entirely from
the children’s perspective.

take me to the river
stinking heaven
Ryder, a naive Californian teenager plans to remain above
the fray at his Nebraskan family reunion, but an unexplained
bloodstain on his young cousin Molly’s dress makes him the
suspect of foul play.
His mother urgently tries to calm everyone, insisting the blood
must have come from a first period. Ryder swears he didn’t do
anything wrong, but questions lead to suspicion and distrust.
Molly’s father Keith tells Ryder to stay away from his daughter
and the accusation of abuse hangs heavy in the air.
But the following day, nothing is as it seemed…
Uncle Keith unexpectedly invites Ryder over for lunch. Ryder
arrives prepared for another confrontation, but finds Keith’s
family strangely welcoming, as if yesterday’s incident never
happened. Ryder is placed next to Molly at the table, and after
lunch, even invited back into her room alone. Ryder decides
to play along, but as Keith’s strange gestures of good faith
turn increasingly bizarre, Ryder finds himself caught in a dark
psychological game that began when his mother was a child,
and will forever change his understanding of himself and his
family. How well do we know our own blood?
Married couple Jim and Lucy (Keith Poulson, Deragh Campbell)
run a commune for sober living out of their suburban New
Jersey home. The motley members eat, bathe and work
together, selling homemade “health tea” out of their van.
Although there’s constant bickering and plenty of fires to be
put out, Jim and Lucy have managed to establish a haven for
these outcasts. But the harmony is interrupted when Ann
(Hannah Gross) arrives. A recovering addict and the ex-lover of
one housemate, Ann’s insidious presence sends the members
spiraling out of control, resulting in fighting, paranoia, drug
relapse and eventually death.
Production company
Matt Sobel is 28, and has been an active filmmaker for the past
twelve years. He graduated from UCLA’s Department of Art and currently
lives in Los Angeles. His first feature Take me to The River was developed
at Binger Filmlab’s writing and directing labs in 2012, and participated in
IFP’s Narrative Filmmaker Lab in 2014. In the same year, Matt was named
one of Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film. His short
X to Y was the Audience Choice Award winner at Cinequest 2009.
director’s statement:
My family is a complex web of secrets and unspoken feuds, the origins
of which no one can even recall. Once a year however, my relatives call a
truce and return to the farmhouse where they grew up, carrying cold cuts
and casseroles as peace offerings. We speak about the weather, about
weddings and funerals, artfully sidestepping the palpable tension. This
conspiracy of silence, where a glance can incriminate, and psychological
warfare plays out beneath a veneer of cordial nicety, was the inspiration
for Take me to The River. How well can we ever know another person?
Even those closest to us?

Matt Sobel (director)
Nathan Silver graduated from New York University’s Tisch School
of the Arts in 2005. Since then, he has written and directed five feature
films: The Blind (2009), Exit Elena (2012), Soft in the Head (2013),
Uncertain Terms (2014), and Stinking Heaven (2015). His films have
screened at festivals around the world and been released theatrically in
the United States. Recently Silver was profiled in the New York Times, and
Filmmaker Magazine named him “one of the most interesting emerging
directors in U.S. indie film.”
director’s statement:
I’ll never shake the quote: “Hell is other people”. Every movie I make is a
wrestling match with this statement. A movie about a commune in the
early 90’s seemed like the perfect arena for the latest match. My cowriter and I outlined the story structure; the actors and I developed the
characters; and the cinematographer improvised along with the actors.
The point was to create an environment that would allow chaos and life
to rule the movie. In the end, it’s a documentary of a fictional world – one
that deals with the need for family, love and humiliation.
stinking heaven Inc.
was founded by Rachel Wolther. Based in NYC, Rachel
has produced four feature films including See You Next
Tuesday (Drew Tobia, 2013), and Josephine Decker’s
two films, Thou Wast Mild and Lovely (2014) and Butter

National Headquarters, a boutique production company
that focuses on original storytelling and branded content.

pangea (formerly flycatcher)
An intimate and starkly different narrative from Africa, Nakom
follows Iddrisu – a Ghanaian medical student forced to return
to his home village after his father’s sudden death. To repay
a family debt – and for their basic survival – Iddrisu delays
his study to turn the family farm and fortunes around. He
struggles to confront tension between his father’s two wives,
the forces of nature and climate threatening the family crop,
and the tragic consequences of his brother’s illicit affair with a
young cousin. But as the rainy season arrives and transforms
the landscape, Iddrisu’s hard work begins to pay off, and a
romance with the chief’s daughter pushes him to reassess the
life he was trying so hard to leave behind. In the end, Iddrisu
faces a stark choice: leave and pursue his image of a modern
future, or stay and embrace the traditions of his home.
In an attempt to reconnect with his dysfunctional dad, Dan
signs on for a poorly planned trip into the Thai jungle. They
lose their food, they lose the path, and Dan begins to wonder
if any of his father’s adventure stories are actually true.
Rasquaché Films
has worked for the realization of socially and personally
relevant narrative films since 2008. Sombras de Azul, the
company’s debut feature, premiered at the Austin Film
Festival and has since screened at over a dozen domestic
and international venues. In 2013, Rasquaché filmed
Nakom over the course of 4 months in rural Ghana, setting
out to tell a little-seen story with broad appeal.
Travis Pittman lived and worked in the village of Nakom for 2 years
with the US Peace Corps, and scripted the film with the close collaboration
of Producer Isaac Adakudugu. As the co-founder of Rasquaché Films,
Travis previously produced and edited the Cuba-set narrative feature
Sombras de Azul. Kelly Daniela Norris wrote and directed Sombras, winner
of the Audience Award at its premiere at the 2013 Austin Film Festival,
weaving together memory, narrative, and travelogue as an exploration of
grief and resilience.
director’s statement:
director’s statement:
I grew up in the desert and often fantasized about heading off into the
jungle, though I’d never seen one in real life and wouldn’t until decades
later. Pangea is perhaps best understood as an extension of that:
a fantasy, a fairytale of sorts.
Nakom aims to challenge and broaden ideas of what it means to be
African. We see family dynamics play out – sometimes serious, sometimes
playful. We see the contrasts between village-life tradition and city-life
ambition. We see gender politics, tired hierarchies, dorm room romance,
and so much more that humanizes; that lays bare the universal.
It’s that desire to reveal commonalities that lifts Nakom beyond the
village that’s its namesake, to tell a story taking place right now in villages
across Ghana and the entire developing world; a story about human
contentment and the yearning for more.

Malcolm Murray’s commercial projects, including the acclaimed
Stella Artois film Up There, have garnered awards at Cannes Lions and
the One Show. His narrative feature debut, Bad Posture was named one
of the Ten to watch: Best of IFFR 2011, and one of Hammer to Nails’
Top Ten Films of 2011. Cowboy, a narrative feature in development, was
a Cinereach Development Grantee in 2012. Malcolm’s latest feature,
Pangea, will premiere in 2015.
Dan’s journey is something that many of us can relate to. He sets off in
search of one thing (which he doesn’t get), and ends up finding something
even better. Something he never even knew existed. So often life doesn’t
quite work out as we plan. Pangea celebrates the unpredictability and
strangeness inherent in being alive.
