Experimental Film

The 49th Ann Arbor Film Festival concluded Sunday night. This year's festival presented 40 programs over six days with 188 films, videos and live performances, including more than 20 premieres. Personally, the highlight of the festival was a feature-length documentary called “Foreign Parts," a beautifully shot and edited two-year examination of life in Willets Point, a neighborhood in Queens, New York, where scrappers survive in an automobile wasteland facing the shadows of a new Mets stadium. Another highlight of the festival was a series of short documentary pieces produced by Sam Green. Check them out here.
