Read a book. Build a house. Without a degree in architecture, self-taught designer/builder, Avriel Shull became the go-to gal for regional modernism in much of Indiana–and beyond.  This presentation looks at a short, but highly prolific career and the woman who made “Avriel” a synonym for “modern” in Indiana. Presenter Connie Zeigler is the owner and principal of C. Resources and has served as a preservation consultant for communities, individuals and a state preservation commission.

BEST OF THE FEST: “East Side Sushi” Film Screening

Years of working in the food industry have made Juana’s hands fast – very fast. This single mother can slice and dice anything you throw at her with great speed and precision. When Juana lands a position as a kitchen assistant at Osaka Japanese restaurant, a whole new world of cuisine and culture are discovered, far removed from everything she has ever known.

While working in the restaurant’s kitchen, Juana secretly observes the sushi chefs and eventually teaches herself to make all kinds of sushi – with a Mexican twist. Her creativity sparked, Juana’s re-ignited passion for food drives her to want more from her job and her life. But when she is unable to work there as a sushi chef because she is neither male nor Japanese, Juana embarks on a journey of self-discovery, determined not to let anyone stop her from achieving her dream.

BEST OF THE FEST: “American Real: The Forrest Lucas Story” Film Screening

For the first time, Forrest Lucas goes back to where his childhood home once stood to wrestle with demons of the past. With the help of his sisters, he relives a painful youth. What starts out as a simple documentary about the life of one of America’s self-made millionaires turns into a journey of self-discovery and forgiveness. Hesitant to dredge up old memories of pain and strife, Forrest explores a range of emotions he’s kept bottled inside for most of his life.

Along with the retelling of Forrest’s past, the film also explores the story of his wife, Charlotte Lucas, and their tale of love and sacrifice. Their bond is what their company, Lucas Oil, was truly built upon. Through interviews with many of Lucas’ employees, the film looks at what drives Forrest and, as Charlotte says, “keeps the ball rolling.”

BEST OF THE FEST: “Dukale’s Dream” Film Screening

Actor Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness traveled to Ethiopia in their role as ambassadors for World Vision Australia in 2009. During that visit, they met Dukale, a coffee farmer. Growing up, poverty had deprived Dukale of an education, but he saw an opportunity to create a new future for his family when World Vision offered access to a new kind of economic empowerment. Jackman was so inspired by Dukale’s story, that he made – and kept – a promise to him that is revealed in the film.
