8/12: ONE-EIGHTY. Little films about big changes.

Thursday, August 12th, the Nueva Onda Movie Nights is screening ONE-EIGHTY – a short set of little films about big changes – at 8pm! Door prizes and Q&A with filmmakers!

WAKE UP: Josh has a strategy when it comes to nightmares, but his urban-legend-quoting office-mate disagrees — whether the impact from a fall in your dreams will force you awake or kill you while you sleep. In this low-budget-yet-effects-heavy short, Josh has many nightmares to choose from, but which is worse: a violent end, or losing his girlfriend?

Writer-director and ex-NOMN screening committee member Zane Rutledge will discuss the special effects he used in making this eye-popping film at the end of the night. Don’t miss it!

UNDER THE HOOD: A progressive coffee house in Killeen allows Ft. Hood soldiers to express their feelings about war and their assignments. (2010 TEN UNDER TEN Selection)

WHAT’S IN A NAME: A compelling examination of the lives and outlooks of four transgender Austinites. (2010 TEN UNDER TEN Selection)
