FEATURED SHORT:
TRAILHEAD by Emily Fraser & Henry Wiener. 20 min. A celebratory profile of a relatively unknown urban gem, this 20-minute film features a wildland trail system that connects the heart of Oakland to redwood forests and over five hundred miles of trails that span the entire East Bay. Featuring perspectives ranging from trail users to historians, creek restoration experts to local merchants to park volunteers, the film spans a typical park day, beginning pre-dawn in Oakland’s Dimond District, and concluding at sunset from a scenic Joaquin Miller Park ridge overlooking downtown Oakland and San Francisco Bay.

Film Synopsis:
Behind a curtain, jittery teens hold hands in a circle. It’s opening night. For months they’ve choreographed, scripted, and rehearsed. Who they are, where they’ve come from, and what they want to become—their stories shape the show.

What is it like to grow up in one of the nation’s most violent cities? Capturing the raw beauty and powerful grace of a dance company for at-risk youth, F R E E journeys behind the curtain to spotlight the intimate stories of five teenagers in Oakland, California. This uplifting documentary showcases art’s ability to transform
violence, poverty and isolation.
