Phantom Of The Road

Movie - 14 min 17 sec: Family, Comedy, Drama, Thriller,Sport

Director:Charles Wall
In the 1950's, nine year old Bobby Reed is passionate about drag racing. He discovers that seventeen year old William Porter, who works as a gas station attendant, has discreetly built himself a hot rod from a 1930 Ford model A. Though Bobby is too young to drive, he sees an opportunity to live vicariously through William because of his superior knowledge to build a fast hot rod as well as his ability to drive very fast. The catch is that William, a minority of African decent, is unwelcome in the predominately white drag racing scene


Movie - 11:28 mins Family,Musical,Political
Director: Alex Lubin
This rock musical portrays the struggle of protesters at the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, and the strain it puts on one couple's relationship. The couple exemplifies society’s divisions with one of them continuing to preach a hopeful message of peace and love while the other craves vengeance, vulnerable to going down an angry, violent path. Commemorating the 50th anniversary of this historical event, the film not only reflects our past, but also our current divided, political climate. It proves that we must all come together to better our country, no matter who's running the government.
