Parallel Film Collective and ARRAY are pleased to present the Washington DC Preimere of “OUT OF MY HAND” by New York-based Japanese director Takeshi Fukunaga on Tuesday, December 8th at Anacostia Arts Center.
“OUT OF MY HAND” takes viewers inside the humble life of Liberian rubber plantation worker Cisco. Severe working conditions, failed unionization and corporate corruption ultimately drive him away from his family and his country to the foreign streets of New York City where his past forces him to confront his sense of isolation and belonging. This film debuted in the Panorama Section of the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival.
And Washington DC Premiere of award-winning South African film “AYANDA” by director Sara Blecher at Anacostia Art Center on Wednesday, December 9th.
After tragedy strikes, a young woman begins a journey of self-discovery as she struggles to save her father’s car repair shop along with her memory of him. AYANDA is a coming-of-age story from writer/director Sara Blecher that takes us into a vibrant Johannesburg community alive with love and humor, risk and reward, tragedy and triumph. This film held its world premiere screening at the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival winning the Special Jury Prize in the World Fiction Competition.
