That Which is Possible

Michael Gitlin

Runtime84 minutes

Poster

A community of painters, sculptors, musicians, and writers make work at the Living Museum, an art space on the grounds of a large state-run psychiatric facility in Queens. Shot over the course of two years and structured across the arc of a day, the film observes with an intimate lens and unspools like a musical, both bracing and tender. It explores the liberation and healing that creativity can offer those drawn together by shared struggle. It points to a more humane and holistic approach to mental illness, and to the joy of transforming society itself.

The Voice of The Voiceless

Maximon Monihan

Runtime109 minutes

Poster

A radically different vision of filmmaking. This silent film follows Olga, a teenager with hearing impairment, who is lured from Central America to New York City under the false promise of attending a Christian sign language school. Once she arrives, Olga finds herself a slave to an international criminal syndicate. Forced to sell “I am deaf” trinkets on the subway, Olga is trapped inside a nightmare that will not end while we, the audience, are trapped with her. Based on a true story, The Voice of the Voiceless shatters our ideas about film, storytelling, and sound.
