First Match - Olivia Newman (Brooklyn, New York) Fourteen-year-old Monique “Mo” Morris is the only girl on what has been an all-boys wrestling team. As she prepares for her first, co-ed high school match, her desire to beat her male opponents on the mat is about more than proving to her skeptical teammates that she has earned her starting position. She is also wrestling to connect with her father, a former wrestler, and struggling single father. 2011; 15 min. With an in-person appearance by director Olivia Newman! Postales (Postcards) – Josh Hyde (Boulder, Colorado) Postales (Postcards) is a touching and beautifully-shot feature film about the overcoming of barriers of language, poverty, and cultural misperception in a rapidly globalizing world. In the streets of Cusco, Peru, the lives of an American businessman and his daughter become irreversibly intertwined with those of a rural Peruvian family struggling day to day to survive. Without knowing how their lives will ultimately intersect, an intimate bond is forged between the young American woman and the Peruvian son. As the construction of a new hotel is finalized, both they and their families are confronted with the harsh reality of a shifting world and the unexpected encounters that will alter all of them forever. In Spanish, subtitled. 2011; 80 min.
