NewFest Kicks Off Today
By Jessanne Collins
Rivers Wash Over Me (directed by John C. Young)—cultures clash as a gay teen from NYC moves in with relatives down South. Possible heartfelt monologues, tragicomic ups-and-downs, and hot Southern accents.
The Baby Formula (directed by Alison Reid)—a mockumentary about lesbian parenthood and experimental pregnancy techniques. Possible slapstick humor, kvetching in-laws, and awkward Lamaze classes.
Pop Star on Ice (directed by David Barba and James Pellerito)—documentary about gay figure skater Johnny Weir. Possible sparkles, Bolero, and asymmetrical sleeves.
