Save your seat, save some cash. CCAD Students may reserve tickets for free in advance. On the day of the event, student entry will be $2.

Films include:

Prodigy Brothers
Director: Joe Camoriano
Runtime: 50 minutes

In Prodigy Brothers, filmmaker Joe Camoriano provides a “behind-the-scenes” look at what life is like for Josh and Zac, two Canadian brothers who are prodigies — one in art, the other in music. An attack from a Russian crime ring, while Josh was still in his mother’s womb, may have led to Josh’s prodigiousness, as explained by experts in psychology and neuroscience. A similar trauma thirteen years later may have led his brother Zac to become a prodigy in his own right. We are able to capture a few moments of their lives as they pursue their separate passions. By the end, we begin to appreciate the bond they have and learn that prodigies are not that different from us.


Woody’s Order
Directors: Daniel Miller, Jeremy Newberger, and Seth Kramer
Runtime: 16 minutes

Woody was eight when he asked his parents for a sibling the only way a bright, nonverbal, cerebral-palsied boy could: he pointed to mom’s tummy and dad’s ... lap. The result: Ann, an actress/comedian torn between her Broadway career and being her brother’s loving caregiver. How do you live your own life when you’re Woody’s order?


The Driver Is Red
Director: Randall Christopher​
Runtime: 15 minutes

Set in Argentina in 1960, this true-crime documentary follows the story of secret agent Zvi Aharoni as he hunts down one of the highest-ranking Nazi war criminals on the run.


Giovanni Coda
Runtime: 8 minutes

During an attack, police officer Xavier, among his injured fellow officers, was shot dead. There are broken dreams and unanswered expectations of peace. But there is no place for hate, with dialogue and tolerance being the only possible solutions.


Zug nach Peace (Train To Peace)
Directors: Jakob Weyde and Jost Althoff
Runtime: 9 minutes, 25 seconds

The sound of the Berlin subway takes a stranger back to the history of his country — Iraq — where peace is rare and happiness only comes as a guest.


All The Leaves Are Brown
Director: Daniel Robin
Runtime: 25 minutes

A short film about memory, loss, family, and a sugar maple tree.
