Netflix Shorts Program
Enjoy a collection of three short films from Netflix:
Audible (Matt Ogens)
Audible is a cinematic and immersive coming of age documentary following Maryland School for the Deaf high school athlete Amaree McKenstry and his close friends as they face the pressures of senior year and grappling with the realities of venturing off into the hearing world. Amaree and his teammates take out their frustrations on the football field as they battle to protect an unprecedented winning streak, while coming to terms with the tragic loss of a close friend.
Camp Confidential: America’s Secret Nazis (Daniel Sivan)
By blending animation and first hand accounts, director Daniel Sivan (The Devil Next Door) brings to life the unimaginable story of a little known POW camp, where 3,451 of the highest ranking Nazi scientists and prisoners (such as Wernher Von Braun, Hitler’s #1 scientist, the U-234 crew and Otto Ambros, who worked on chemical weapons in Auschwitz) are held captive on American soil during WWII, guarded and interrogated by 60 Jewish Refugees.
LEAD ME HOME (Pedro Kos, Jon Shenk)
Shot over the course of three years in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle, this short presents the epidemic of homelessness in America with a show-don’t-tell approach, featuring candid testimonials from those who rest their heads in shelters, tent cities, and anywhere a night’s sleep can be found. A poetic and dignified portrait of our culture’s fraying edges and the people who inhabit them, Lead Me Home is filled with bracing humanity.
This digital screening includes a moderated filmmaker conversation that will be on demand with the film. Participants to be announced soon!
Captioning and ASL will be provided for this virtual showing and conversation.
