Brothers Drake Meadery
26 E. 5th Ave
Columbus, Ohio, USA
The Columbus Film Council is back at Brothers Drake with more award winning short films:
The Stagecoach Bar: An American Crossroads- an excerpt from Jennifer Tennican's CIF+VF Bronze Plaque winning film about the Stagecoach Bar in Wilson, Wyoming.
CIF+VF Silver Chris award winner SHACHARIT – A MORNING PRAYER. In Steven Loring's short film set int an Old World, ultra-orthodox synagogue in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, we intimately observe the daily sunrise prayer service - and hear the story of one congregant, an Hasidic rabbi, who traces his journey to this segregated life back to a McDonald's in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
CIF+VF Silver Chris Award winner Crooked Beauty is a poetic documentary that chronicles artist-activist Jacks McNamara's transformative journey from childhood abuse to psych ward inpatient to pioneering mental health advocacy. It is an intimate portrait of her intense personal quest to live with courage and dignity, and a powerful critique of standard psychiatric treatments. Poignant testimonials connect the fissures and fault lines of human nature to the unstable topography and mercurial weather patterns of the San Francisco Bay Area. Crooked Beauty reshapes mental health stigmas through a new healing culture and political model for living with madness as a tool of creativity, inspiration and hope.
