Directed by Jennifer Kent
Starring Essie Davis, Daniel Henshall, Noah Wiseman
English
1 hr 33 mins, rated NR

Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) is at a loss. She struggles to discipline her ‘out of control’ 6 year-old, Samuel (Noah Wiseman), a son she finds impossible to love. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a monster he believes is coming to kill them both.
When a disturbing storybook called ‘The Babadook’ turns up at their house, Samuel is convinced that the Babadook is the creature he’s been dreaming about. His hallucinations spiral out of control, he becomes more unpredictable and violent. Amelia, genuinely frightened by her son’s behaviour, is forced to medicate him.


But when Amelia begins to see glimpses of a sinister presence all around her, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may be real.

Ted DeMille writes with authority and performs with an accessible, understated passion. His music is decidedly left-handed and draws influence from Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan, Greg Brown, and Bill Monroe. Ted’s songs are instantly memorable and equally comfortable in a waxed New England hall, a Bluegrass Festival, a church basement, or the intimate confines of a cozy listening room. He sings songs worth hearing. Joined by the indispensible Taylor Smith on mandolin, guitar, and vocals, and ace bassman Chris Dombrowski, this is a show not to be missed. The wonderful Giff Jamison opens the show.


Originally from Minnesota and now a Maine-based songwriter and performer, Giff’s playing draws from folk, jazz and rock influences but his roots are country blues and finger style guitar. Empty prairies, slow rolling rivers, and lost travelers all find a place somewhere in his music. A 4-time finalist at the New England Songwriters Contest, he recently released Ramone, a CD of 11 self-penned songs recorded at Frog Hollow Studio in Brunswick. Giff has been a regular performer along the Mid Coast and enjoys playing as a solo artist and in the company of fellow songwriters and musicians.

The 2015 Maine Short Film Festival sponsored by the Maine Film & Video Association is starting a theatrical tour of Maine theaters beginning January 8th at the Frontier Café in Brunswick, ME (7:30pm). Featuring nine short fiction and non-fiction films from eight Maine filmmakers, the 90 minute festival competition was juried by three of Maine’s top film reviewers: Daniel Kany, art critic with the Portland Press Herald, Ben Fowlie, founder and director of the Camden International Film Festival, and Louise Rosen, artistic and executive director of the Maine Jewish Film Festival. The shorts are all new releases from 2013 and 2014 and made by several of Maine’s top filmmakers.  The titles and filmmakers include:

 

Liz, by Sharyn Paul Brusie, 27 min. Second Place Audience Choice Award and Honorable Mention for Best Short Doc at the 2014 Woods Hole Film Festival.  Liz documents the profound personal journey for survival of a young woman. Homeless at 13, Liz lived a tragic life of despair, raging behavior and a brutal fight to survive on the streets.  With raw grit and extraordinary conviction, she surrendered the struggle and found peace when she turned her fight to the boxing ring.


Handful of Romance, by Sean Martin.  Two men cause their sock puppets to make out creating awkward tension between them.


The Schmee of Havilah Hawkins, by Steve Stone, director and Kevin Ross, editor of www.OffCenterHarbor.com, a video website; Havilah “Haddie” Hawkins, a fourth generation schoonerman, is the real deal.  Catch a glimpse of the soul of a boat and the soul of her captain—both icons of trailing-edge technology. Located on the coast of Maine in the quiet town of Brooklin, OffCenterHarbor.com is a video website created for classic boating enthusiasts.


ARRT!, by Geoffrey Leighton, sponsored by the Union of Maine Visual Artists; The Artists Rapid Response Team -- creates banners and props to promote the work of progressive non-profits across Maine.  Artists from throughout the state meet in Brunswick for a marathon ARRT! workday. This film tells the story of this group of artists and their commitment to creating a low-tech solution to issue-based communication.


Deux Ex Machina, by Seth Campbell Brown, premiered at the Camden International Film Festival, 2014 Covered in grease, sandwich in hand, he has been in his shop tearing wires, and replacing logic with humor and wit.  This is the story of a man building an incredibly beautiful, yet incredibly dangerous machine.


A Story of Opportunities, by Seth Campbell Brown, Ugandans walk hours to reach basic life needs. Living in isolated communities, individuals are physically stuck in a world of poverty. But there is hope for a new future ­ one where individuals can carry themselves and their families needs and dreams, on the back of a bicycle.


Farm, by Christoph Gelfand., 5 min.  Farm is the simple story of a wandering spirit enjoying her time in nature. Combining precise sound effects with a lyrical voiceover, this non-fiction short is a calm retreat where the viewer can slow down and appreciate life on a farm.


Ursula, directed by Sarah Francoise and Anna Rios, produced by Jamie Hook.  This is a film about a young girl wandering alone in the forest, When she meets a mysterious sunbather adrift on a lake, the stage is set for a rural, pedestrian road movie in which nothing turns out to be quite what it seems. URSULA glows with the warmth of summer, and the magic and confusion of childhood.


In These Times (2013, 3:24), by Richard Kane and Melody Lewis-Kane, featuring the music of Noel Paul Stookey. Since 1988, the Tree of Life Food Pantry has been providing emergency and supplemental food assistance to residents of the Blue Hill, Maine, peninsula.  This inspirational film encourages all to support their local food pantry to help end hunger.


The Maine Film & Video Association (MFVA) is a not for profit trade association representing the filmmakers of Maine.  Richard Kane, chairman of the MFVA board and director of In These Times had this to say: "The purpose of the Maine Short Film Festival is to build audiences for the work of Maine filmmakers.  It also builds support for important issues that confront the people of our state.  We hope you will attend this festival and support the filmmakers and theaters in our state.”
