BLUE JAYS - SEQUOYAH
Director: Lev Omelchenko
Wednesday April 24, 2019 12pm
Blue Jays depicts a young boy discovering and actualizing an expressive energy within himself. Set in the lush forest of Atlanta, Sequoyah Murray embodies an ancient winged spirit calling on the boy (August Murray) to not be afraid, to embrace his desire to dance, to be free. The film offers an alternative to the brutal and dehumanizing imagery that we consume on an everyday basis, and provides a healing vision.

Wonderwall is a short film/narrative cinematic music video, which tells the story of unconditional love that helps overcome the loss of a loved one and helps one cope with grief.

Let's enjoy the present, seize opportunities, engage with life fully and take action to make the world a better place. The film is about sunlight and freedom, about time passing by and our daily lives. It is about the duality of things, which can be both pleasant and threatening.
Carpe diem, seize the video!
