I Called Him Morgan
Directed by Kasper Collin
Cast: Billy Harper, Al Harrison, Albert Tootie Heath
Genre: Documentary | Drama
1hr 32mins


On a snowy night in February 1972, the 33 year old jazz trumpet star Lee Morgan was shot dead by his common-law wife, Helen, during a gig at a club in New York City. The murder sent shockwaves through the jazz community, and the memory of the event still haunts the people who knew the Morgans. Helen served time for the crime and, following her release, retreated into obscurity. Over 20 years later, a chance encounter led her to give a remarkable interview. Helen’s revealing audio “testimony” acts as a refrain throughout the film, which draws together a wealth of archival photographs and footage, notable talking heads and incredible jazz music to tell the ill-fated pair’s story. Part true-crime tale, part love story, and an all-out musical treat, I CALLED HIM MORGAN is a stirring tribute to two unique personalities and the music that brought them together. A film by Swedish filmmaker Kasper Collin (My Name Is Albert Ayler). Featuring cinematography by Oscar-nominated DoP Bradford Young (Selma, Arrival).

The Home Road
Directed by Tonya Shevenell
Genre: Documentary
1hr 15mins


The Home Road is the first documentary project by Portland, Maine based film and marketing company, Home Ice Productions, and Tonya Shevenell.


In 1845, 19-year-old Israel Shevenell left his home in Canada and walked nearly 200 miles to Biddeford, Maine. He found work as a brick maker and is recognized as the city’s first permanent French-Canadian settler and French voter. In 2015, his 74-year-old great-great-grandson, Ray Shevenell, retraced the pioneering journey, walking from Compton, Quebec to Biddeford.

 

From director/producer, Tonya Shevenell: The Home Road is inspired by the coming-of-age story of my great-great-great grandfather, Israel Shevenell. I wish I could talk to the 19-year old who set out on foot April 1st, 1845, headed southeast from his home in Compton, Quebec; crossed the border;  trudged through lingering winter snow in New Hampshire's White Mountains and deep mud in the Saco Valley; and arrived at his destination of Biddeford, Maine two weeks later. He earned $12 a month as a brickmaker in this booming coastal town; it was steady work and more money than he could make farming at home. He walked back to Quebec that fall and convinced his family to move to Biddeford with him. Israel became the city's first permanent French-Canadian settler; contributed to its growth and changed the course of Shevenell family history. In 2015, my father, Ray Shevenell, celebrated the 170th anniversary of this pioneering trek by retracing Israel's journey, walking the nearly 200 miles from Compton, Quebec to Biddeford, Maine.


This walk is the foundation for The Home Road documentary film. Layered over this adventure are narrations, oral histories and interviews, photos and film, and stories; exploring the themes of migration, movement and "home".

Band Aid, the refreshingly raw, real, and hilarious feature debut from Zoe Lister-Jones, is the story of a couple, Anna (Zoe Lister-Jones) and Ben (Adam Pally), who can’t stop fighting. Advised by their therapist to try and work through their grief unconventionally, they are reminded of their shared love of music. In a last-ditch effort to save their marriage, they decide to turn all their fights into song, and with the help of their neighbor Dave (Fred Armisen), they start a band. A story of love, loss, and rock and roll, Band Aid is a witty and perceptive view of modern love, with some seriously catchy pop hooks to boot.

California Typewriter presented by the Curtis Contemporaries
Directed by Doug Nichol
Cast: Tom Hanks, John Mayer, David McCullough, and the late Sam Shepard
Genre: Documentary
1hr 43mins


In this magnificent filmic essay, director Doug Nichol explores the mythology attached to the typewriter, as cultural historians, collectors and various obsessives (including Tom Hanks, John Mayer, David McCullough, and the late Sam Shepard) celebrate the physicality of the typewriter both as object and means of summoning the creative spirit.

 

It also movingly documents the struggles of California Typewriter, one of the last standing repair shops in America dedicated to keeping the aging machines clicking.


A fascinating combination of history and emotional narrative plunges us into the mysterious, bittersweet moment in which a beloved technology faces extinction and delivers a thought provoking meditation on the changing dynamic between humans and machines.
