Green Book
Starring
Viggo Mortensen
Directed by Peter Farrelly

In 1962, Tony "Tony Lip" Vallelonga, a tough bouncer, is looking for work when his nightclub is closed for renovations. The most promising offer turns out to be the driver for the African-American classical pianist Don Shirley for a concert tour into the Deep South states. Although hardly enthused at working for a black man, Tony accepts the job and they begin their trek armed with The Negro Motorist Green Book, a travel guide for safe travel through America's racial segregation. Together, the snobbishly erudite pianist and the crudely practical bouncer can barely get along with their clashing attitudes to life and ideals. However, as the disparate pair witness and endure America's appalling injustices on the road, they find a newfound respect for each other's talents and start to face them together. In doing so, they would nurture a friendship and understanding that would change both their lives.

The Rotunda Project
Directed by Shanden Simmons, Directed by Jeran Simmons

Over two years in the making, The Rotunda Project is a dual, full-length documentary and EP release conceptualized by the Western Kentucky progressive rock band, Fairseas.

The film follows Fairseas and twelve other local musicians through the collaborative development and recording process of five original songs, held in the makeshift studio created inside the Rotunda of Paducah’s newly revitalized local landmark: the Coca-Cola Plant.

One song was recorded per night for five consecutive nights, highlighting the local talent and creativity exhibited by the feature musicians, videographers, and technical engineers.

The Rotunda Project was created in an effort to capture the sound and history of the recording space; to celebrate Paducah’s artistic community; and to illustrate the importance of what can be achieved with a common goal through collaboration, community, and unity.

In "the public" an unusually bitter Arctic blast has made its way to downtown Cincinnati and the front doors of the public library where the action of the film takes place. The story revolves around the library patrons, many of whom are homeless, mentally ill and marginalized, as well as an exhausted and overwhelmed staff of librarians who often build emotional connections and a sense of obligation to care for those regular patrons. At odds with library officials over how to handle the extreme weather event, the Patrons turn the building into a homeless shelter for the night by staging an "Occupy" sit in. What begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a stand off with police and a rush-to-judgment media constantly speculating about what's really happening. This David versus Goliath story tackles some of our nation's most challenging issues, homelessness and mental illness and sets the drama inside one of the last bastions of democracy-in-action: your public library.
