– Joan Rivers – A Piece of Work, directed by Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg – a rare, brutally honest glimpse into the comedic process and private dramas of legendary comedian and pop icon Joan Rivers as she fights tooth and nail to keep her American dream alive.
– My Perestroika, directed by Robin Hessman – follows five ordinary Russians living in extraordinary times < from their sheltered Soviet childhood, to the collapse of the Soviet Union during their teenage years, to the constantly shifting political landscape of post-Soviet Russia. Together, these childhood classmates paint a complex picture of the dreams and disillusionments of those raised behind the Iron Curtain.
– Bass Ackwards, directed by Linas Phillips – A man coming off a disastrous affair with a married woman has a lyrical, strange and comedic cross-country journey in a modified VW bus.
