CRABCAKE: Annapolis Film Festival | Aleppo (March 2019)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs!  What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20.  In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

It happens every year…well at least for the past seven years! The Annapolis Film Festival is bringing more than 70 films to Annapolis March 21st to 24th!

We sit down to talk to the producers of “Aleppo”, a short film that attempts to change the narrative of how Syrians are depicted in the media, and ultimately change minds. By telling a story about one doctor’s experience in Aleppo, they  hope to shed light on the critical work of all doctors and victims of the war as it continues.

The film is about Hanan, a successful young Syrian-American doctor, who returns to Syria to help victims of war. When the hospital where she works is bombed, she suffers a traumatic brain injury that leaves her face blind. Unable to recognize the faces of even those closest to her, Hanan’s world has been turned upside down and her identity lost.

Now home in New York, Hanan has difficulty coming to terms with how her life has changed following the attack. Haunted by her trauma and struggling to adjust to her condition, Hanan must confront her fear of navigating the world, putting her identity, and her future as a doctor, in doubt.

Aleppo screens at 12:30pm on Sunday, March 24, 2019 at Annapolis Elementary

CRABCAKE: Annapolis Film Festival | Solace | Tchaiko Omawale (March 2019)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs!  What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20.  In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

It happens every year…well at least for the past seven years! The Annapolis Film Festival is bringing more than 70 films to Annapolis March 21st to 24th and we sat down with the founders once again to see what was in store for their seventh go around of this fantastic event that has brought millions to the area economy!

Tchaico Omawale is the writer, producer, and director of Solace. We spoke a little bit about the film and how real the characters are, the struggles they face and how they mimic some of her own as she was growing up as the child of a UN employee living across the globe. Solace is about a 17-year old girl, Sole, who is sent to live with her grandmother after her father’s death. The relationship is toxic and the film examines the struggles between the two as Sole tries to find her way and her crew. It has been banded as a coming of age movie, but deep down, this is so much more!  Omawale will be present at the screening and will be hosting a Q&A afterwards!

Solace screens at 2:45pm on Sunday, March 24, 2019 at  St. Johns College Key Auditorium!

CRABCAKE: Annapolis Film Festival | In Reality | Ann Lupo (March 2019)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs!  What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20.  In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

Who doesn’t love a good love story? Well In Reality starts out that way…and then she get’s friend-zoned!  The somewhat autobiographical film by Ann Lupo (her first feature) finds the lead (played by Ann who also directed, produced and edited) character madly in love and quickly spiraling into despair when she enters the “friend zone.” In order to snap out of it and deal with her catharsis–she decides to make a movie.  Kinda meta, eh?  This is a genre bending film and when you leave, you are not sure if it is a rom-com, chick flick, or a documentary–or quite possibly a little bit of both. This has won more than a dozen awards on the festival circuit and is one of the ones I consider a MUST SEE! There are two screenings for you! Have a listen as we chat with Ann about In Reality!

In Reality screens at 8:45pm on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at the Maryland Hall in the Bowen Theatre!

In Reality screens at 7:15pm on Sunday, march 24, 2019 at the Annapolis Elementary School.
