A SORT OF HOMECOMING | Feature-Drama

 

A Sort of Homecoming tells the story of Amy (Michelle Clunie), a New York news producer who thought she left her high school experiences long in the past. She unexpectedly returns to Louisiana at the request of her high school debate coach (Kathleen Wilhoite). Their strained reunion brings back memories of her tumultuous senior year of high school.

Through a series of flashbacks, we follow young Amy (Laura Marano) and her debate partner Nick (Parker Mack) on the highly competitive national debate circuit as they meet compatriots (Katherine McNamara) and competitors from top high schools around the country and the college coaches who control access to valuable scholarships.

Nick and Amy’s national championship experience in New York reveals circumstances from Amy's past that brings the partners closer together personally, but the outcome of the tournament places Nick in an untenable position.

As Amy recalls the losses of the past, she is forced to reconsider her dreams and desires — ultimately putting the past to rest, turning a fresh page, and writing the next chapter of her story.

SHADOW ZOMBIE | Independent - Drama
 
Kim lives with his dad, sells weed to skaters, writes poetry, and snorts painkillers to get through the day. One evening, while strolling through the subdivision painted up as his alter ego Shadow Zombie, Kim catches the eye of a registered nurse and part-time clown Brandi. What follows is a brief romance marked by destruction by the very real phantoms emanating from Kim's dead-end present and Brandi's traumatic past. Shooting under near-documentary conditions in and around Lafayette, Louisiana, Jorge Torres-Torres operates by peopling his film with a coterie of genuine Acadiana misfits. As the imagery swerves like a junkie's waking nightmare from handicap actuality to grotesque realism, a shadow world is hinted at, visible from the one we live in but decidedly separate from it. The merciless and at times unexpectedly poignant observation of Kim's world dares to see through to the human core of a drug addict or clinically depressed clown.
