Carmel Short Cinema at Forest Theater
- When: Sunday, July 19, 2009, time TBA
- Where: Outdoor Forest Theater, Carmel
- Cost: Not available
- Age limit: Not available
For those who haven't the appetite or patience for this summer's blockbusters, the Forest Theater Guild and CSU Monterey Bay's Department of Teledramatic Arts and Technology serve up a helping of short cinema from CSUMB students. The projects (all shorter than 10 minutes) include music videos, narratives and documentaries, many of which examine issues close to Monterey County. "Letters from Within" is a stunning documentary about life inside a Juvenile Hall in Salinas, while "Surcos de Esperanza" ("Hope Furrows") is one student's tribute to her mother, an immigrant who came to the U.S. with no education or money to work in the fields, overcoming poor working conditions and discrimination to raise five children. "The National" is a short film depicting the life of an aging superhero struggling to remain relevant. Viewers should dress warm and bring a blanket. Concessions available. [MC]
