5 Films Playing at Movies at the Mill
Easton's Movies at the Mill returns in two weeks. Here are five films on the schedule.
Movies at the Mill, Easton's annual film festival, returns Saturday, Sept. 22 at the former Simon Silk Mill property.
Here are five of the short films in the lineup, with synopses from the Movies at the Mill website.
1. Blue Sheep Suit
By: Kevin Lonano
What's it about? "A short glimpse into the life of a news journalist in the 1980s seeking a story involving the presidential frontrunner to get his reputation in order, but what he finds could endanger his life. Blue Sheep Suit is an atmospheric and ambiguous story of obsessions and failures."
2. Growing Up in the Ward
By: Anna Mae Schwartz
What's it about? ""Poor, yeah we were kind of poor, but definitely happy and I wouldn’t have it any other way,' says Schwartz of growing up in Allentown’s 6th ward (the ward). Growing Up In The Ward documents the impact that the Girls Club had on the lives of young girls growing up in the ward during the 40s and 50s but, more specifically Anna Mae and her cousins."
3. Animated Poetry
By: Maciek Albrecht of Easton's MagikWorld Studio.
What's it about? "A compilation of three animated films inspired by all things Easton – including Karl Stirner and Easton’s iconic symbol – the Bugler."
By: Hungarian writer/director György Mór Kárpáti
What's it about? "Murder is committed in the forest. A young man becomes caught up in the events, and this experience has an increasingly unsettling effect on him."
5. Green Soldiers
By: Easton filmmaker Vincent Mondillo
What's it about? "Mark is a professor that loves to talk about nuclear power as a terribly dangerous folly. He thinks of himself as a hip radical, until he meets Chester, an obsessed wild man with a secret plan that forces Mark to the razor's edge. How far will Mark go to stop nuclear power? Is there anything Chester won’t do?"
