The 80 minute program includes: “Benevolent Ba,” Malaysia, U.S.A. A devout woman’s lust for virtue thrusts her family into a sacrificial slaughter of biblical proportions. Directed by Diffan Sina Norman; “Hot Flash,” Canada. Ace is having a hot flash, and she’s about to go live on local television. How one woman tries to keep her cool when one type of flash leads to another. Directed by Thea Hollatz; “The Deepest Hole,” U.S.A.

This is particularly surprising since Hell may have been inadvertently discovered in the process. Directed by Matt McCormick; “Meats,” U.S.A. A pregnant vegan struggles with her newfound craving for meat. Directed by Ashley Williams; “T,” U.S.A. A film crew follows three grieving participants of Miami’s annual T Ball, where folks assemble to model R.I.P. t-shirts and innovative costumes designed in honor of their dead. Directed by Keisha Rae Witherspoon; and “So What If The Goats Die,” France, Morocco. Abdellah, a young shepherd living in the mountains, is forced to brave the elements blocking him in order to get food and save his goats.
