2014 Oak Cliff Film Festival: Documentary Shorts
The 2014 Oak Cliff Film Festival will presents a series of documentary short films, including:
David Hockney in the Now: In Six Minutes: The sexy story of the iconic British artist David Hockney, who is adamant about living life in the now.
Uncle Floyd: Legendary cult performer Uncle Floyd as he performs at a mom-and-pop Italian restaurant in Northern NJ.
A Man Without Words: Ildefonso grew up without any language. Born deaf to hearing parents who never exposed him to signing, he had no shared language and had no idea what language was. Adapted from Susan Schaller's non-fiction account of introducing Ildefonso to language, the short film A MAN WITHOUT WORDS tells the story of his journey to language by bringing Ildefonso and Susan back to the classroom where they met, where he learned that he and everything has a name, and she learned what it is to be human.
The Curse and the Symphony: David Schulte’s film about Austinite Nathan Felix’s effort to break into the elite world of classical music and see his symphony performed by a full orchestra for the first time. The catch: Nathan Felix is a former punk and pop musician with no formal musical training. It took eight years to compose the 6-movement orchestral symphony, The Curse, The Cross, and the Lion.
How to be Lofi with Friends: A short documentary cataloguing the making of Audio Rebellion's album Full Frontal.
Cherry Pop: The Story of the World's Fanciest Cat: The true and quirky story of the world's most pampered cat, and the people who loved her.
