8:00pm –
SITTIN’ ON A MILLION (2008, 26 minutes) presents these stories in all their contradictory glory, alongside vintage erotica, reenactments, and street performances asks us to consider the role of memory and imagination in creating history, and reminds us about all those ordinary, extraordinary people erased from the official record.
Film by Penny Lane & Annmarie Lanesey

Bernice Perry: Queen of Sinatraland (2008, 17 minutes)
Bernice Perry is an 83 year-old songwriter who has been producing her own public access television show for 37 years. Her life and work, inspired by Frank Sinatra has a haunting quality that forces us to ask questions about definitions of celebrity, nostalgia, and reality.
Film by Victoria Kereszi
