Broadway Rising (United States) – World Premiere in the Movies Plus category. This feature-length documentary, directed by Amy Rice, follows the Broadway community’s journey over the past few years. From the almost overnight shutdown due to the pandemic to the paths taken by essential theater workers on their road back to the stage, this rousing film is a story of triumph and perseverance after a twisted road of setbacks and heartbreak. Following the movie’s screening, Director Amy Rice, Producer Jesse Tyler Ferguson, accompanied by more Broadway luminaries, will engage in a conversation in celebration of Broadway along with a very special performance. The film premiered on Monday, June 13; additional screenings are Thursday, June 16 at 3:15 p.m. in Theater 6 at Village East by Angelika, and Sunday, June 19 at 12 p.m. in Theater 7 at Village East by Angelika.
In addition to Broadway Rising, Amy Rice’s directing credits include the Emmy® award-winning film By the People: The Election of Barack Obama (HBO), Hurricane of Fun (Netflix), and the forthcoming political thriller, The Independent. Rice is currently in development on a TV series, Next of Kin, about a family who lost their son on 9/11.
Aisha (Ireland) – World Premiere in the Spotlight Narrative category. This feature-length drama, written and directed by Frank Berry, follows Aisha, a young Nigerian woman seeking asylum in Ireland. Floundering in a maze of social services and bureaucracy, this timely and poignant story chronicles the harrowing trials faced by the millions of displaced individuals across the globe. As her situation becomes increasingly dire, Aisha struggles to maintain hope and dignity against the looming threat of deportation. The film premiered Saturday, June 11; additional screening on Saturday, June 18 at 5 p.m. in Theater 2 at Village East by Angelika.
