Cleveland theatrical premiere!


United States | 2019 | Phillip Youmans

BURNING CANE film still

Winner of the prize for Best Narrative Feature at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival and nominated for two Independent Spirit Awards, this acclaimed new movie is the directorial debut of a 17-year-old New Orleans high school student—clearly a filmmaker to watch! It’s a Terrence Malick-esque portrait of a mother living in Southeastern Louisiana and of the two men she worries about most—her unemployed, alcoholic son and a conflicted preacher also tempted by the bottle (The Wire’s Wendell Pierce). “Has made me a believer in the boundless artistic potential of its creator.” – Cleveland theatrical premiere. DCP. 77 min.
