“All around there's a feeling in the air that with the grace of time we’ll be getting closer there.” May Yam’s Xmas Cake – This American Shelf-Life (US 2018, 10 min) shows how starting a go-go band was one woman's way of lashing out at antiquated gender roles. In Robin Hoskyns’ Guardians of Anja (UK 2017, 10 min), we meet the amazing creatures who are doing their part to protect the rainforests of Madagascar. With Walt Whitman: Citizen Poet (US 2019, 11 min), Haydn Reiss pays tribute to one of America’s most renowned humanists, providing an exciting introduction to Whitman's life and demonstrating why his legacy is still relevant today. In Ben Proudfoot's That’s My Jazz (US 2018, 14 min), Milton Abel, a world renowned pastry chef, reflects on his relationship with his deceased father, Milton Abel Sr., famed Kansas City jazz musician. In T.J. Parsell's The Gender Line (US 2019, 12 min), transgender musician Cidny Bullens, former rock star and mother of two, feels fortunate to have been both a wife and husband in the same lifetime as he reflects on having lived on both sides of the gender line. Ross Kauffman’s Still Plays with Trains (US 2018, 16 min.) captures one man’s passion to share the joy of childhood. By recreating his 10th birthday with a 3,000 square foot replica of the old Lackawanna Railroad in his basement, he gives us a nostalgic glimpse of what it was like growing up in the 1950s.
