Sebold
www.redwithoutblue.com
Red Without Blue chronicles the close, yet sometimes
strained relationship between identical twins, Mark and
Alex, as Alex undergoes a transformation into a woman
named Clair. Through candid and extensive interviews,
each twin recounts the difficulties of growing up gay
in Montana, the deleterious effects of their parents'
separation, and the boundaries crossed as drugs and
sexual experimentation spiraled out of control. From the
twins' retelling, we experience the singular bond they
shared as children, the hardships they endured, and
Mark's evolving perspective now that his identical twin
has ceased to be identical. Audience Award - Slamdance

THE SPACE WITHIN MEMORY
Experimental, Oxford, Mississippi / 5 minutes, MiniDV

STARTLE PATTERN
Experimental, North Carolina / 13 minutes, 16 mm
Director, Producer, Writer: Eric Patrick
Startle Pattern is a farewell card to film in an increasingly
digital age. In this late age of emulsion, this essay is a call
of the cinematic gaze to a state of crisis: the narrative of
isolation leaves a puppet's forms tattered and decayed,
and hints at the Protagonist's delicate relationship
with reality, voyeurism, the director and the apparatus.
Southern premiere.

Director, Writer: Jay Thompson
Producers: Leon Clarence, Natalie Mehlberger, Jay
Thompson, David Finleyson
www.heartofanempire.com
Albin Johnson of South Carolina founded a small club
In 1997 for fans of the Star Wars Trilogy who owned
authentic costumes of the films' Imperial forces. He
dubbed it the fighting 501st Legion, consisting of such
icons as Stormtroopers and Darth Vader. This very visible,
but misunderstood group of nearly 4500 members
dressed as Stormtroopers do charity work worldwide.
We follow their public and private worlds, attempting to
explore the reasons why these adults choose to dress up
in costumes of science-fiction characters. Finally, we bear
witness to an incredibly ironic twist of fate that will reveal
what really lies at the Heart of an Empire. The filmmakers
will be In attendance along with members of the 501st
Legion. Southern premiere.
