THE STILL LIFE OF ANNIKA MYERS
Director: Darlene Tait | 16 min
During the Dutch Hunger winter of 1945, Annika Myers traded her family’s treasured painting of a feast for rations. Now, at 84, she has found it, and she wants Evan O’neill, the diligent retired manager of a grocery store, to help her steal it back. But is it truly the painting she hungers for? Evan, who has something of his own to reclaim, is faced with a difficult but life-affirming choice.

FULL MOON – MATTHEW STERN MUSIC VIDEO
Director: Lukas Hanulak | 3 min
Island-based singer/songwriter Matthew Stern, in collaboration with director Lukas Hanulak and cinematographer Daniel Zemancik, present Full Moon.
