“The Palooka” is based on one of Tennessee Williams’ long-lost short plays, in which an up-and-coming fighter meets an older palooka before his fight. The washed-up fighter takes the rookie boxer under his wing and regales him with stories of his childhood hero, Galveston Joe. Will either man get to live those storied dreams? Watch the Trailer

dir. George O’Connor
After all life-threatening disease and illnesses are suddenly cured, a priest and his flock struggling to reconcile their faith with this new reality.

dir. Daniel Kramer
A man stands at the edge of a wood. He hesitates, then walks up a little-used path, hoping to find a woman he once knew. He loves her. He wants her to come home. Now living in isolation, she wants to sever her ties to him, and to the world. As they confront their past and their present, do they have a future?

Inspired by Anton Chekhov’s short story ‘The Huntsman’ and anchored by beautifully nuanced performances from Justin Campbell (THE HURT LOCKER) and Allison McLemore, RECENTLY LONG AGO offers a moving portrayal of two people at a crossroads.
