Motion Arrested: A look at the drug war and mass incarceration through the eyes of an artist.
In this unvarnished, yet lyrical, feature documentary, Mississippi sculptor William Beckwith fights the criminal justice system that threatens to ensnare his son with the only weapon he has: his art. Through his singular lens, we experience a complex, riveting journey through the American criminal justice system as it exists today, including glimpses into the drug war, mass incarceration, immigration reform and the private prison and pharmaceutical industrial complexes and primarily focusing on the use of teenagers as confidential informants. With filmmaking partner Shannon Cohn.

Saturdays Celia goes to work with her mother at the Moore-Bigger Advertising Agency, where she does her homework. She also illustrates The Phantom Lamb Newsletter. The Phantom Lamb is her best (imaginary?) friend who is an adorable, precocious British lamb the size of a mouse, but who is also a bit of a trickster and an unreliable narrator at best. When he charms her away from her homework and into his adventure, they become trapped in the world of his Newsletter and must travel through time and space get back home.
For Keep's Sake
Keep Sake, a young Florida souvenir starfish and a bit of a dreamer, is separated from his parents when they are sold without him. He and his best friend Al (a green alligator freed from his glitter globe) take off to find New York and Keep's parents by hitchhiking in a tourist's pocket. They end up in the wrong city before ultimately arriving in New York. There they hook up with Lady Liberty, a family of Russian stacking dolls, a bobblehead dachshund and a dashboard Saint, who join in his quest to find his parents.
The Tennis Handsome
Adapted from the Barry Hannah novel
Childhood friends Baby Levaster, a ne'er-do-well doctor, and French Edward, a handsome, professional tennis player, become inexorably intertwined when their paths cross again as adults. French Edward's decision to confront his mother's infidelity with his old tennis coach sets into motion a series of events in which he is drowned and later revived by lightning. Levaster thrusts himself into French's life as his doctor and begins to live vicariously through him to disastrous results.
