Black Bear

A filmmaker (the fantastic Aubrey Plaza) embarks on a rural retreat to recharge her creative batteries. In no time, she's pulled into the host couple's internecine drama. Things reach their boiling point, when suddenly everything we as the audience understand to be true is shaken up and tossed aside. Filled with hairpin twists and turns reminiscent of *Mullholland Dr.*, *Black Bear* is the type of movie you'll want to begin again the moment it ends.

Cicada

After a string of failed relationships, Ben, a young bisexual, enters into an interracial relationship with Sam. Set against the backdrop of the Jerry Sandusky trial, Ben and Sam’s relationship becomes a tender and tense exploration of past traumas. A stylistic tour de force that features its director and writer in the lead roles, *Cicada* blurs the line between fiction and autobiography. IndieWire calls *Cicada* “a sexy and searing act of gay self-analysis.”

Summertime

Director Carlos López Estrada (*Blindspotting*) returns to the craft with a fanciful and exuberant ode to Los Angeles. The stories of 25 Angelinos from all walks of life intersect in a *Slacker*-esque narrative with dialogue primarily consisting of spoken word poetry written by real-life high school performers. And while these characters could not be more different, their interconnectedness shows that it's a small world after all, even in a city of 4 million people.

Test Pattern

Renesha is having a great day. She wakes up next to her boyfriend Evan, heads to her her dream job, and grabs drinks with friends. But things quickly go downhill when a flirtatious stranger drugs and sexually assaults her. The next day Evan and Renesha wade through a bog of bureaucracy to get a hospital rape kit. Reminiscent of *Never Rarely Sometimes Always*, director Shatara Michelle Ford's feature debut is a lyrical indictment of our healthcare system.
