DOCUMENTARY SHORT FILMS (PROGRAM B):

Heroin(e) – Once a bustling industrial town, Huntington, West Virginia has become the epicenter of America’s modern opioid epidemic, with an overdose rate 10 times the national average. This flood of heroin now threatens this Appalachian city with a cycle of generational addiction, lawlessness, and poverty. But within this distressed landscape, Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Elaine McMillion Sheldon shows a different side of the fight against drugs; one of hope.
(Directed by Elaine McMillion Sheldon and Kerrin Sheldon, USA, 39 mins., Not Rated)

Knife Skills – What does it take to build a world-class French restaurant? What if the staff is almost entirely men and women just out of prison? What if most have never cooked or served before, and have barely two months to learn their trade? We follow the hectic launch of Edwins restaurant in Cleveland.
(Directed by Thomas Lennon, USA, 40 mins., Not Rated)
