The Donut King, Directed by Alice Gu - Official Trailer

 

THE DONUT KING

 

Directed by Alice Gu, this is the fascinating rags to riches story of Ted Ngoy, a refugee who escaped Cambodia, arrived in the United States in 1975 and built an unlikely multi-million dollar empire baking America’s favorite pastry, the donut. It’s a tale of fate, love, survival, hard knocks and redemption. Ted sponsored hundreds of visas for incoming refugees and helped them get on their feet by teaching them the ways of the donut business. By 1979, he was living the American Dream. But, in life, a great rise can come with a great fall. This documentary captures it all in engrossing fashion.

The People vs. Agent Orange, Directed by Alan Adelson and Kate Taverna, Official Trailer

 

THE PEOPLE VS. AGENT ORANGE

 

Directed by Alan Adelson and Kate Taverna, the film powerfully depicts how the Agent Orange catastrophe did not end with the Vietnam War. Today, the world over, a primary chemical of the toxic defoliant controls weeds in farming, forestry, parks, playground. It wreaks havoc on the human genome, causing deformed births and deadly cancers.

After decades of struggle and tragic personal losses, two heroic women are leading a worldwide movement to end the plague and hold the manufacturers accountable. In France, Tran To Nga is suing the American chemical industry for poisoning her in Vietnam. In America, Carol Van Strum exposes the continuing use of toxic herbicides. Incriminating documents disappear. Activists are threatened. A helicopter technician secretly films the contamination of reservoirs, while a massive industrial cover-up goes on. An eye opening experience awaits you.

NOTE: In addition to the screening of the documentary, MNFF artistic director Jay Craven will lead a probing conversation with The People vs. Agent Orange filmmakers Kate Taverna and Alan Adelson along with Lindsey Schromen-Wawrin, attorney for Lincoln County Community Rights lawsuit against aerial spraying of herbicides in Oregon, and Susan Hammond, from Bellows Falls, Vermont, who leads the internationally respected War Legacies Project and was recently profiled in a New York Times Magazine feature story for her work on Agent Orange issues in Laos. The interview will be available on the MNFF watch portal as part of the Split/Screen May offering.

Stray, Directed by Elizabeth Lo, Official Trailer

 

STRAY

 

Directed by Elizabeth Lo, this remarkable film explores what it means to live as a being without status or security, as it follows three stray dogs as they embark on inconspicuous journeys through Turkish society. Zeytin, fiercely independent, embarks on adventures through the city of Istanbul at night; Nazar, nurturing and protective, easily befriends the humans around her; while Kartal, a shy puppy living on the outskirts of a construction site, finds companions in the security guards who care for her. The strays’ disparate lives intersect when they each form intimate bonds with a group of young Syrians with whom they share the streets. This award-winning documentary is a critical observation of human civilization through the unfamiliar gaze of dogs and a sensory voyage into new ways of seeing.

Udo Kier and Jennifer Coolidge in Swan Song.  NOTE: The film's distributor has generously granted us an early screening of Swan Song but the film's trailer is not yet in general release.
_____________________________________________________________________________

 

SWAN SONG

 

Directed by Todd Stephens, this charming drama, based on the true story of its main character, introduces us to retired hairdresser and local iconic bar performer Pat Pitsenbarger, played wonderfully by Udo Kier, who has given up on life from the confines of his small-town Sandusky, Ohio nursing home. But when Pat gets word that a former client’s dying wish was for him to style her final hairdo, he sets out on an epic journey across Sandusky to confront the ghosts of his past – and collect the beauty supplies necessary for the job. Swan Song is a comical and bittersweet journey about rediscovering oneself, and looking gorgeous while doing so.
