“Another day, but even in springtime, it’s a rich slice of life." In this documentary shorts program we present a collection of true-life tales about extraordinary individuals. In Nicholas Coles’ Isis Hair Salon (US 2016, 5 min), hair stylist Carrie Banks has unwittingly been thrust into the war on terror, and she’s fighting back one braid, weave, and extension at a time. Dan Foldes' Bread & Roses Presents (US 2017, 9 min) profiles the iconic 43-year-old organization that brings hope and healing through live music and the performing arts to isolated audiences in the San Francisco Bay Area. In Fire & Light (US 2017, 10 min), director Dana Conroy introduces us to four young siblings with autism who find an unusual path to healing: fire dancing. In John Picklap’s Between the Sand (US 2016, 10 min), artist Jean-Paul Bourdier travels into covert desert locations to discover something more real and true about the nature of who we are. In a classic David vs. Goliath story, Saving Happy Birthday (US 2016, 15 min), filmmaker Jennifer Nelson chronicles the legal battle challenging Warner Chappell’s copyright claim to the song “Happy Birthday to You.” And Andrew Moir's Babe, I Hate to Go (Canada 2017, 19 min) introduces us to Delroy, a migrant worker with a secret, in this intimate, observational documentary about a man coming to terms with his mortality.
