Leading up to Labor Day, we present highlights culled from a decade's worth of programming at Missouri's great True/False Film Fest. These short documentary films depict stories of labor as an inevitable part of our lives, whether enjoyable and fulfilling, difficult and necessary, and/or both. The Films Tina Delivers a Goat (USA, Joe Callander, 2 min) Through taking council with a local village elder, Tina discovers the benefits of a goat, delivers the goat, says hi to mama and papa and behbeh, takes a photo, and leaves. Global generosity in all its blunt simplicity. El Cerco (Catalonia, Ricardo Íscar/Nacho Martin, 12 min) As the fishing boats close in on the tuna, the tension escalates until the men capture their prizes. Breadmakers (UK, Yasmin Fedda, 11 min) At a unique Edinburgh bakery, a community of workers with learning disabilities makes a variety of organic breads for daily delivery to local shops and cafés. A Son's Sacrifice (USA, Yoni Brook, 26 min) A young American Muslim struggles to take over his father's halal slaughterhouse in New York City. Winner, Best Documentary Short, Tribeca Film Festival Il Capo (Italy, Yuri Ancarani, 15 min) A choreographed, spooky look at a marble quarry, this film features the best use of a monolith and upward pan since Kubrick's 2001. Man, machines, nature come together in an elemental masterpiece. Post-Screening Q&A We will be joined by True/False Co-Founder Paul Sturtz, Programmer Karen Cirillo, and award-winning filmmakers Yoni Brook and Musa Syeed.
