All The Little Things
Dir. Jeff Streich
(USA)
BEST OF OREGON
BEST SOCIAL DOC

18-year-old Benjamin – described by those who knew him as soft-spoken and “extraordinarily ordinary” was sentenced to life in prison for the grisly murder of his friend. He has made a full confession but remains unable to explain his actions, leaving both families desperate for answers.

This documentary seeks meaning where none seems possible.

Portraits of the two teens emerge through interviews with family, friends, teachers, counselors, and Benjamin himself, in prison, struggling to examine his past and his actions.

Ground London
Dir. Dustin Morrow
(UK)
BEST EXPERIMENTAL FILM

Ground London’ is an experimental documentary that explores the British capital with a very specific point-of-view, locked in photography that never gets more than three inches off the ground, along with heavy manipulation of both sound and image, exposing a London seldom examined: a city that moves poetically and with great order when observed slowly and in minute detail.

Unresolved in both the film, and life, is the normal life that will actually win out.
