In a dim, fire-lit clan house, a Tlingit Elder reveals the centuries
old legend of Kusah Hakwaan - a demon which lives in the spirit worlds
of Southeast Alaska. Using innovative special-effects, compelling action
scenes, and breathtaking footage, independent filmmaker Sean Morris weaves
together age-old creation myths to explain the unknown. The resulting
story echoes the Tlingit’s esteemed tribal values, ancient traditions,
and the influence of the all-knowing spiritual world. KUSAH HAKWAAN is
the first dramatic feature film made in Alaska by an Alaskan.

A comedy filmed in a single continuous shot. Set at a graduation party
in Los Angeles, an eclectic group of brainy philosophy students, train-hopping
hippies, aspiring prophets, and drug-addled hipsters come together for
one wild night. At the eye of the storm are three best friends, all with
the same problem - women. Jason can’t get enough of them, Steve
can’t let go of the one he’s got and Will can’t understand
them at all. The brainy grad students will have to work through their
issues fast, because tonight’s house party is their last crack at
the women of the philosophy department.
