Global cinema, local flavor

By TOM MEEK  |  August 8, 2013

Apocalypse Later: Harold Camping vs The End of the World | Zeke Piestrup’s documentary explores the mind and world of the notorious doomsday prophet of the title.

Hip, Hop and Extremely Short | Experimental animated shorts that are, as the package title implies, brief — micro-animation?

Torn Cloth | A gritty documentary that chronicles the odyssey of orphan boys from the poorest regions of Thailand, who seek refuge at a camp where they are relegated and trained to become professional Muay Thai fighters.

Foster | Unable to conceive a child, things get interesting for the Morrisons when a seven year-old boy shows up on their doorstep. Toni Collette stars, Jonathan Newman directs.

Death Metal Angola | War-ravaged Angola is the epicenter of the African hardcore music scene. Sonia and Wilker run and live in the orphanage in Angola and harbor a dream to mount a national rock concert. Jeremy Xido’s acclaimed documentary explores the pursuit of that dream, the country and the riotous music scene.
