2001: While Kubrick was in Space

Stanley Kubrick imagined the year 2001 to be a technological world, but for Buenos Aires that same year meant the worst financial crisis in their history. Three teenage friends tormented by their uncertain future decide to avoid reality and escape from everything on a road trip in a stolen pink car. During their odyssey, they'll have to confront their fears, knowing that adulthood is waiting just around the corner. Gabriel Nicoli's debut feature is an unexpected pop vision of a damaged country- a place where Kubrick lives on as a god. -Joshua Moore

Cheer Up

In the isolation of the Arctic Circle, Finland's worst cheerleading team is led by an ambitious coach who's tired of losing. To reverse the team's fortunes she heads off to seek inspiration by visiting the world champions in Texas to soak up their winning ways. Emboldened, her new approach pushes her Ice Queens teenage team to its breaking point. Cheer Up transcends the familiar conventions of sports documentaries, where underdogs triumph over adversity and athletes become archetypes oversimplifying the complexities of human nature and instead tells an entirely unique story. -Chris Metzler

Candy injects the "fun" in her dysfunctional life. When your brother is found by a neighbor naked and drunk, you're stuck with a caveman of a boyfriend, you have a dickhead boss, and the madness of everyday life competes with your mother's desperate need to appear normal, it takes everything inside of you to find hope. But maybe being normal is just a construct for other people. Maybe busting out of that everyday life is more important than fitting in. After years of trying to save everyone but herself, high-schooler Candy Cahill decides it's her turn. Set against the backdrop of New York's largest mental hospital in the 1980s, Creedmoria is the story of one girl's dramatic getaway attempt. Family, after all, is an institution. Sometimes you gotta break out.

Desire Will Set You Free

"I don’t want to show people what the world is like, I want to show people what the world can be, for all its dirty, sexual, crazy, campy and colorful potential." - dir Yony Leyser

A young American writer falls for a Russian hustler and introduces him to his alternative lifestyle amongst Berlin’s queer and underground scenes, but as they make their hedonistic journey through clubs and parties, their inner desires reveal themselves. While examining the differences between expatriate and refugee life, our characters travel through Berlin's layered history, unique subcultural landscape and visit real locations where many Berlin-based personalities give performances, often playing themselves. These include ‘Godmother of Punk’ Nina Hagen, cult musician and performance artist Peaches, Rosa Von Praunheim, Rummelsnuff, Blood Orange, Einstuerzende Neubauten and Blixa Bargeld (formerly of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds). - Jennifer Junkyard Morris

Down Under

In the aftermath of a race riot, Abe Forsythe’s challenging dark comedy follows two carloads of idiots out to make trouble. In one, a gang of young white friends are sick of Muslim immigrants taking over their beaches. In the other, recent transplants from Lebanon are sick being pushed around. Both sides are fueled by macho rage, armed and seriously stupid. Forsythe’s film seems eerily timely in this era when people comfortably air racist grievances and won’t share blame as violence erupts.  -Bears Fonte

Fear Itself

Filmmaker Charlie Lyne (Beyond Clueless) returns to SF IndieFest with his latest documentary, assembled entirely from horror films. Selecting obscure classics and recent hits spanning several decades and originating from countless countries, the film explores whether horror movies know us better than we know ourselves. Expert editing builds fantastic tension and atmosphere, separate from but connected to the source material, and creates a narrative all its own. Fear Itself shows that we can most be ourselves in the dark, where fear and horror are a part of us, not outside of us. -Chris Metzler

Finding Joseph I

Dive deep into the eccentric life of punk rock reggae singer HR of Bad Brains. The charismatic frontman's explosive live performances helped pioneer hardcore punk while delivering an enlightening message of positive mental attitude. HR's heavy devotion to the Rastafarian faith guided him in a spiritual direction, but over the years HR’s increasingly unpredictable behavior convinced many that he is suffering from mental illness. Finding Joseph I delicately illustrates the true story behind the legendary lead singer's life, career and struggles, with never-before-seen archival footage and exclusive interviews. -Chris Metzler

Folk Hero & Funny Guy

Recently dumped by his fiancé and with a stagnating standup routine, aspiring comedian-slash-copywriter Paul (Alex Karpovsky, Girls) is stuck. The manager of the club where he performs suggests he take some time off to update his comedy material, and in waltzes his childhood friend Jason Black (Wyatt Russell, Everybody Wants Some), a free-spirited, famous folk singer, shaking off hangovers and women from the night before. About to embark on a solo acoustic tour of the East Coast, Jason suggests Paul needs to get his mojo back?and he should start by opening for Jason on tour. They set off on the road together, picking up a new act (folk singer Bryn, played by Meredith Hagner) on the way. But as creative tensions rise and love triangles form, rifts are exposed in their otherwise affable camaraderie and the road trip?and the ulterior motives behind it?start to make less and less sense to Paul.
