DREAM/KILLER

In 2005, 20-year-old Ryan Ferguson was convicted and sentenced to 40 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. dream/killer is the story of how his father, Bill, embarked on a 10-year campaign to prove Ryan’s innocence. The film is chock-full of incredible characters. From the questionable District Attorney Kevin Crane, and the highly-confused witness Chuck Erickson, to the high-powered Chicago attorney Kathleen Zellner, the doc depicts both a highly flawed justice system, as well as one that can work brilliantly.

Limited Theaters December 4th. DreamKillerFilm.com


In Columbia, Missouri in 2005, Ryan Ferguson was convicted of murder and sentenced to 40 years in prison despite no physical evidence linking the then-21-year-old to the crime. As he languished in a cell, his father Bill spent nearly 10 years building up evidence that would exonerate his son from his Kafkaesque nightmare. Inspired by Errol Morris' true-crime documentary The Thin Blue Line, director Andrew Jenks (Room 335, MTV's World of Jenks) dissects Ryan's case, showing the corruptive nature of power and brutally slow machinations of the U.S. justice system. Fans of Serial and The Jinx, meet your new favorite film.

The true-crime category, hot in the wake of “The Jinx” on HBO, is well represented by Andrew Jenks’s moving “dream/killer,” about a notorious instance of wrongful conviction and imprisonment in Missouri. Mr. Jenks exhaustively chronicles the case of Ryan Ferguson, sentenced as a teenager to 40 years in prison for the random murder of a journalist. The filmmaker capably orchestrates suspense (if you don’t already know the outcome) and benefits immeasurably from an immensely likable central character, Ryan’s father, Bill, who narrates his own decade-long battle to win his son’s release.

Behind bars, Ryan provides a candid and intimate look at his life, while gorgeous animation is used to recreate his 10-year ordeal. Poignant footage from the Ferguson family archive is interspersed throughout creating a highly personal and revealing film. Bill Ferguson is not only a father but a best friend to Ryan as is demonstrated by his tireless energy and relentless creativity in his fight to bring his son back home where he belongs.                                                    — Deborah Rudolph

ALL-AMERICAN FAMILY

In the quintessentially American suburb of Pleasanton, California, where football is king and trash-talking criticism is wasted, lies a legend. No, not resident NFL legend John Madden, Pleasanton is home to the Pederson family who have had four generations of star players play on one of California’s best high school football teams, The Eagles.

What sets director Andrew Jenks’ ALL AMERICAN FAMILY apart is that silence is golden – literally – an element in which the Pederson family, 30 of their relatives, their classmates and wider community share. Their world is silent but no less boisterous or purposeful as Zane and Jax, the final two Pederson’s at the California School for the Deaf, prepare to lead their team to another title.

It’s an inspiring journey of a family just like any other with similar expectations, familial and social camaraderie and a love for sport.

IT'S NOT OVER

It's Not Over tells the inspiring story of three courageous millennials from around the world who are living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. Award winning filmmaker Andrew Jenks takes viewers on a journey across India, South Africa and the United States to experience the epidemic first hand. The result is a deeply personal and uplifting story that is rarely represented in popular culture.

Jenks takes viewers on a journey to South Africa, where together with Lucky, explores an area with more people living with HIV than anywhere else in the world; to India, where Sarang, an openly gay HIV+ theater director fights to preserve his way of life; and to Middle America where Paige highlights how she has turned her bad experiences of being bullied and teased into something good as a youth advocate for HIV.

It's Not Over was made possible by the M·A·C AIDS Fund and is currently available to view via Netflix, Hulu, Pivot, and SnagFilms worldwide.

Former NBA center Shawn Bradley is mostly remembered for two things -- being one of the tallest players to ever play in the NBA and for being on the wrong end of a lot of great dunks. Taken second overall in the 1993 draft by the Philadelphia 76ers, Bradley is considered by many to be an NBA bust.

In POSTERIZED, Bradley shows us that there is more to life than basketball and that success cannot only be defined by what's done on a basketball court.
