Closing Night Film and Party of DC Independent Film Festival - ticket required

Another week, another film festival. But Shouting Secrets, featuring a Native American cast, feels worthy of this truly independent tag. This is a warm-hearted tale of a fractured family brought together by tragedy: a clan in flux in a story that is at once about the constancy and the fragility of love, as well as the importance of family. Siblings linked by their past but separated by their present are left dealing with each other both in the confines of a hospital and back home on the reservation.

*****
You need to purchase a ticket for this event. At just $15 including the film, a Q&A with the cast and a closing night party, it seems like a good deal.
Here is the link to buy. ******

The movie has played in many competitive festivals during 2012 and has won 11 Jury and Audience Choice Awards for Best Feature Film. So we are in for a treat. We will meet before, take our seats, and then socialize at the party after. I’ve read reviews that say it’s nice to see a story with Native Americans that is without the stereotypes.

Director’s Statement: I believe this story to be a universal family story, no matter which country or ethnicity it takes place in. Far too often, we are so caught up in the business of our life that we don’t realize we are missing out on the most important thing we share: the bond of family, even if things are not always easy. Too often, realization of what matters comes too late. A mother or a father passes away, and a person finds that they have missed out entirely on something they always had.

Again here is the link.

The Archives Metro stop is 20 yards from the front door and street parking should be easy on a Sunday night.

    Great meetup. I liked the movie, the Q & A time, and the party. The movie kept my interest. I liked it as much as movies that you see at the theater. In many ways it was better than so so movies coming out today.
