A film by Lucia Small & Ed Pincus

105 minutes, documentary, color, English, 2014

DVD Extras: Deleted Scenes • Filmmaker Interview • Panel Discussions ("Being Mortal" / "Ed's Legacy" / "The Female Gaze")

When documentarian Ed Pincus, considered the father of first-person non-fiction film, is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he and collaborator Lucia Small team up to make one last film - much to the chagrin of Jane, Ed's wife of 50 years.

This New York Film Festival selection is told from both filmmakers' points of view. Ed and Lucia's unique approach to filming offers an intimacy rarely seen in docs, questioning whether some things might be too private to be made public. An intense, raw, yet sometimes humorous exploration of the human condition, One Cut, One Life invites viewers to contemplate for themselves what is important, not only at the end of life, but also during.

Critic's Pick! Ravishingly beautiful...pulses with an almost ecstatic vitality.” - The New York Times

“Thorny, tender and unvarnished...a breathtaking reminder of life's joys.” - Los Angeles Times

“An elegy for the dead, the dying, and those who live on. It's a thing of lovely imperfections: profound and banal, self-absorbed and insightful, weighted with grief and buoyed by resilience. In short, as messy and precious as life itself.” - Boston Globe

A film by Sara Dosa

78 minutes, documentary, color, English, 2014

DVD Extras: TBA

Amid the bustling world of Central Oregon's wild mushroom hunting camps, the lives of two former soldiers intersect. Roger, a 75 year-old sniper with the US Special Forces in Vietnam, and Kouy, a 46 year-old platoon leader of Cambodia's Khmer Freedom Fighters who battled the Khmer Rouge, come together each fall to hunt the elusive matsutake mushroom, a rare mushroom prized in Japanese culture and cuisine. However, the pair discover more than just mushrooms in the woods: they find a new life, a livelihood, and a means to slowly heal the scarring wounds of war. Told over the course of one matsutake mushroom season, The Last Season is a journey into the woods and into the memory of war and survival, telling a story of family from an unexpected place.

“Sara Dosa makes the matsutake a metaphor for the cycles of life, and has created a lyrical ode to the wonders of love and nature, even amid inevitable change.” - San Francisco Chronicle

“Filmgoers who slip into the groove of its meditative wavelength will be enthralled and touched in ways that most nonfiction doesn't even approach. The layers of visual and aural detail invite the viewer to contemplate a geographical and anthropological comparison that no one speaks of directly...the Oregon forest is a world away from the jungles of Vietnam and Cambodia.” - East Bay Monthly

The Last Season hunts down and captures the essence of the modern documentary, slowly and surreptitiously seducing you into the ever-enlarging story languishing beneath the surface.” - Cinesource Magazine
