 Best of 2021 New Jersey International Film Festival program #2 of award-winning films on Sunday, October 10

The Fall 2021 New Jersey Film Festival will feature two programs of award winners from this past Summer’s New Jersey International Film Festival. Films will be available for 24 hours on Sunday, October 10 via Video On Demand. Here is the line-up for Program 2:

 First Light - Amy Lee Ketchum (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) Rising from the sea monster of death, a young woman’s ghost leads her grieving sister through the heart of darkness in search of light. The story of First Light is revealed through a synthesis of music and art; a hybrid of traditional hand-cut puppet and hand-drawn 2d character animation with digital effects, and an original classical score. Its poetry is sung by Maren Montalbano and Jessica Beebe, vocalists in Grammy® Award-winning ensembles. 2020; 9 min. Winner Best Animated Film!

Bone Cage - Taylor Olson (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada)  In this gorgeous feature film from Nova Scotia, Jamie works operating a wood processor, clear-cutting for pulp. At the end of each shift, he walks through the destruction he has created looking for injured animals, and rescues those he can. Jamie's desire to break free from this world is thwarted by the very environment and circumstance he's trying to escape. Bone Cage is a sensitive examination of the parallels between the toxic ideals of masculinity that children are taught who become men, and how this goes hand in hand with the destruction of our earth. 2020; 79 min. Winner Best Feature Film!
