Can't Stop Me Leavin'

Narrative Short

Getting out of town always seems to be such a big deal in Hollywood movies. Characters are constantly trying to escape the town they grew up in, for example, The Last Picture Show, The Postman Always Rings Twice and Stand By Me. I guess, getting out of town is some kind of a myth. This, I suppose, is why it needs to be so tricky and agonizing. Can't Stop Me Leavin' is a comedy about one desperate couple's escape that challenges this very myth. The irony here is that this is Japanese town and the couple's escape doesn't look very hard nor painful. Will their escape succeed? Or will it fail as in other movies? Either way, you'll witness a new myth born in Higashiayamato city of Japan.

Farewell to Factory Towns?

Documentary Short

What can residents of communities that have been devastated by deindustrialization do to improve their condition during a time of austerity, war and anti-labor attacks? The film focuses on the introduction of a massive museum of contemporary art in the same buildings that housed Sprague Electric Company in a typical New England mill town. Billed as an engine of economic development, the museum hasn't produced the jobs it promised and the city's downtown is semi-deserted. The film argues that national policy must change and that vibrant unions and social movements are needed to bring about a new 'New Deal' to deal with the social and economic crisis facing U.S. cities today.
