  5. Love’s River of Errors

    David Richardson / Short, Animation / USA / 2016 / Experimental / 2:52 mins
    "Love's River of Errors" was written, designed and collaged after my brother's death from addiction, which he hid so well from our family for many years. In writing the poem, I changed my brother to "my sister" to get some distance in the creation of this video; just that much separation made it possible. Addiction touches almost every family, it seems. Creating this piece was how I came to some small sense of peace.

  9. North Branch

    Nick Nummerdor and Andrew J. Morgan / Documentary / USA / 2017 / Documentary, Sports / 19:00 mins
    Throughout the 1970s, brothers Jerry and Jeff Kellogg of Muskegon, Michigan were a force to be reckoned with in the sport of marathon canoe racing. Growing up along the north branch of the Au Sable River as second generation paddlers, the brothers won their first local race as teenagers and never looked back. The brothers took home consecutive wins in the 120 mile Au Sable Canoe Marathon; all while battling 15 hours of steady paddling through the night. Their contribution to the sport of canoe racing set new standards for racers to come with over a decade worth of top 5 finishes.
