Streaming Titles from our 2015 Lineup
As we continue to stay safe in these trying times, NHFF is dedicated to bringing you a couple of titles to stream during the week. With time to reflect on the past twenty years of shorts, documentaries, and feature films this week we dove into our 2015 alumni films, which included some truly amazing titles. Please enjoy and stay safe out there!
Please enjoy the feature film “Mississippi Grind” and documentary “Cartel Land”
“Mississippi Grind,” written by alumni NHFF screenplay judges Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, is available for free with a Netflix subscription and is available for rent on both iTunes and Amazon for $3.99. “Mississippi Grind” follows Gerry, a talented poker player whose habit is getting the best of him. He convinces a younger player Curtis to join him on a road trip, and they begin gambling their way towards a high-stakes game in New Orleans. During their journey, true motivations are revealed, and the two bond. “Mississippi Grind” is steeped in a wonderful Southern atmosphere, becoming a road movie and addiction drama that goes past its traditional genres. Enjoy this movie from our alumni
“Cartel Land ” is available to stream for free with an Amazon Prime subscription and on Hulu, as well as iTunes for $4.99 and Amazon for $3.99. “Cartel Land” takes place in the Mexican state of Michoacán. Following Dr. Jose Mireles, a small-town physician who shepherds a citizen uprising against the Knights Templar, the violent drug cartel that has wreaked havoc on the region for years. Meanwhile, in Arizona’s Altar Valley, a narrow 52-mile-long desert corridor known as Cocaine Alley, Tim “Nailer” Foley heads a small paramilitary group called Arizona Border Recon, whose goal is to halt Mexico’s drug wars from seeping across the American border. “Cartel Land” is a raw, brutal, and bitter ground-level look at vigilante efforts to prevent organized crime at the American-Mexican border.
As we all continue to follow our nation’s guidelines for self-isolation, we hope you are continuing to stay safe and healthy in your homes. We hope that we can offer some small comforts in providing a couple of films each week for your enjoyment.
Wishing you all the best,
The New Hampshire Film Festival Team
