THE MADRES: March 3 - April 29  (world premiere)
Buenos Aires, Argentina - People are disappearing off the streets but no one is talking about it. The "Dirty War" waged by the military Junta against its own people is in full swing. Three generations of women in a single family face state terrorism. The Mothers of Los Desaparecidos de Argentina can teach us all how to fight tyranny. Stephanie Alison Walker’s THE MADRES is one family's story.

HOSTAGE: May 12 - June 17 (world premiere)
Based on true events. During the Iran hostage crisis, a mother travels from Wisconsin to Tehran hoping to reunite with her son, a marine held in captivity. Michelle Kholos Brooks imagines what happened when mother and son were briefly reunited and the consequences the mother faced upon returning to the U.S. HOSTAGE is about patriotism, the political vs. the personal, and the ferocity of a mother’s love.
