Impactful Films from our 2019 Lineup for Streaming
As we all continue to stay in our homes, there’s an incredible amount of time to catch up on some of 2019’s best films. With all this time to look back on our past twenty years, we’re proud to celebrate some of the best films from our 2019 festival. Please enjoy the feature film “Driveways” and documentary “Artifishal”.
Driveways (2019) directed by Andrew Ahn
Kathy, a single mother, and her shy eight-year-old son Cody travel to Kathy’s late sister’s house, which they plan to clean and sell. As Kathy realizes how little she knew about her sister, Cody develops an unlikely friendship with Del, the Korean War vet, and widower who lives next door. Over the course of the summer and with Del’s encouragement, Cody develops the courage to come out of his shell and, along with his mother, finds a new place to call home. With the recent passing of Brian Dennehy, who stars as Del, we wanted to bring special attention to this critically acclaimed feature. Andrew Ahn’s “Driveways” is available for $4.99 on both Amazon and iTunes.
Artifishal (2019) directed by Josh Murphy
“Artifishal” is a documentary concerning the high cost—environmental, financial and cultural—of hatcheries and fish farms, and our mistaken reliance on human-engineered solutions. It explores our loss of faith in nature, and the impact on communities and ecosystems as wild salmon slide toward extinction. Josh Murphy’s “Artifishal” is an impressive look at the lucrative salmon hatchery industry, and is available for rent on both Amazon and iTunes for $4.99, and is free with an Amazon Prime membership.
Between the understated character study grounded in fundamental civility of “Driveways,” and the lucrative salmon hatchery industry profiled in “Artifishal,” both films are sure to captivate and charm you. We here at NHFF hope that these two films can provide a most welcome escape from the tribulations of today’s environment. Please enjoy this stellar documentary and touching feature film.
