LADFF 2021 presents a special screening of the award winning documentary: In The Dark of the Valley
Aurora, Colorado's GEO ICE facility is a private immigrant detention center whose shadowy practices are obscured from advocates and lawmakers alike. But through the stories of those fighting to free their loved ones, and those who have done time on the inside, this film will shine a light on a facility too often shrouded in darkness.
Culture Clashes are explored from six different perspectives and from four different countries.
The Pine Ridge Reservation declares a “State of Emergency”, after a devastating rash of youth suicides tragically reaches the highest levels in the country. Due to inadequate federal assistance, residents take prevention efforts into their own hands. A tenacious Oglala Lakota elder leads the tribe’s suicide prevention team and mentors a resilient young group of suicide-survivors to find their voice, encouraging them to help bring awareness and hope within the reservation.
Three gripping films house three of the most incredible performances in this year's program.
These four hilairous short films are relatable, dense, and brilliant. They also happen to be directed by incredibly talented women.
Five powerful dramas that explore the family dynamic, and it's long lasting effects on the heart.
The first hint of love (butterflies included) make up this gorgeous, romantic program.
Artistic mediums, styles and perspectives are explored in very different ways in these five game changing films.
LADFF presents this block with the help of Audio Eyes. All six films have descriptive video narration.
