Twenty years ago, Georgia Deputy Kyle Dinkheller was brutally murdered along a cold stretch of highway in rural Georgia in what has become the most infamous police dash cam video ever captured. The footage itself has been seen around the world millions of times, often attached to false stories and rumors. In 2017, one police officer sought to understand who that deputy was outside of one bad day and, in doing so, found a seed of truth that turned a short film into a feature-length investigation.

Cast: Patricia Jordá, Aida de la Cruz, Yohana Cobo, Mauricio Bautista, Carmen Mayordomo

Marisa is a 35-year old playwright for whom nothing seems to really work out, a state that leads her to an existential angst which she avoids by immersing herself in the drama of her friend Mina, who is going through a histrionic depression after the recent break up of her relationship. Marisa is lost in a jungle of other people’s drama while postponing hers. She walks the streets of Madrid with the agility of a Rohmer’s heroine and reveals, by constant dialogues, her own existential anxiety. She wakens from this lethargy after an unexpected event completely overturns all her ideas and she wanders, until she is forced to face what is worrying her.

Cast: G.K. Simpson, Byron Haygood (B. Good), Mickey Hardeman (Snoop)

G.K. Simpson and Byron Haygood (B. Good) are two former dog breeders who take viewers into a world where money talks, pit bulls are the currency and media perpetuate many of the stereotypes maligning this misunderstood breed. Mercy's Kennel explores the economic backdrop to what is commonly called "backyard breeding" to show how poverty and ignorance are at the root of pet overpopulation and animal abuse in many underserved areas.

To illustrate the plight of the pit bull, G.K. and Byron talk with shelter officials, rescue groups, breeders, dog fighters, and everyday people on the street. Our story takes a tragic turn when G.K.'s childhood friend, Matthew Hardeman, is murdered. G,K. and Matt's brother, Mickey (Snoop), search for solutions to the violence paralyzing inner-city communities, and their quest leads them back behind bars and more dogs in need of rescue.
