that the USA is becoming more polarized in terms of politics every day. Every day, we’ve got Republicans blaming Democrats for the state of the economy and Democrats blaming Republicans. Both sides say the other refuses to compromise. In this day and age, who’s at fault? Patriocracy dares to dig into the issue and come back with the truth. Both sides are at fault. That’s easy to say, but how do you show it?
quite difficult to pull off. At a runningtime usually under 20 minutes,the film has to get to the storytelling immediately, get you invested in the characters quickly and tell a story leaving you satisfied before the credits roll. This is the first short film I’m covering for the 2011 Starz Denver Film Festival.
Terrebonne is the story of a college student (Dean J. West) visiting a young boy named Fry (Cullen Chaffin) who claims to have seen an incredibly rare ivory-billed woodpecker. The boy’s sister, Jean (Jessica Heap) decides to go with them into the bayou to find where the boy saw it. While on the trip, Jean’s embarrassing past comes to light. The films ends at a nice point that leaves you satisfied, while still wanting more.
