First, in Henrietta Bulkowski – Jury’s Stellar Award for Animation (Rachel Johnson, 2018), we meet a determined young woman who will stop at nothing to fulfill her dream of seeing the world. In Ulises (Ulysses) – Jury’s Stellar Award for Narrative (Jorge Malpica, 2018) the filmmaker adapts the story of Circe and Ulysses into an encounter between a singular fisherman and a mermaid. Next, in The Last Guide, another fisherman, the last fishing guide in the Algonquin Park, tells his story of survival and redemption (Cristian Gomes, 2018). The Elephant’s Song – Global Insights Stellar Award for Animation (Lynn Tomlinson, 2018) tells the true and tragic tale of Old Bet, the first circus elephant in America. Her story is portrayed in colorful, handcrafted animation, created frame by frame with clay-on-glass.  We close the program with Woody’s Order – Global Insights Award for Documentary (Seth Kramer. Daniel A. Miller, and Jeremy Newberger, 2016) based on a one-woman show written and performed by actress Ann Talman, and adapted into film by Seth Kramer. Family legend has it that Ann was “ordered” into this world in 1956 by Woody, her then eight-year-old brother with severe cerebral palsy.  Ann’s raison d’être was to care for Woody if and when their parents could not.   

Includes a discussion and Q & A with Jane Steuerwald, Executive Director of the Black Maria and Ann Talman, Woody’s Order
