UC Davis Film Festival films screen May 22 and 23


A slate of live action shorts and documentaries will be screened during the 13th annual UC Davis Film Festival, May 22-23.

The films to be screened are the work of UC Davis undergrad and graduate students, and include the following films:
-- "7 Kilometer" by Jacob Greenlund. The film is a blend of fiction and documentary, wherein a nice guy attempts to win a rap battle to impress a girl. A second film by the same director, "The Candidates' Debate," uses found footage to explore the spectacle and performance elements of presidential debates.

-- "The Big Chop" by Alexis Alizor, explores issues of race, gender and beauty by telling the story of three African American women who have transitioned from chemically straightening their hair to wearing it natural.

-- In "The Box," student Layth Haddad investigates his generation's short attention span and addiction to distractions.

-- "Four Generations" by Jhunehl Fortaleza, provides a snapshot of four generations of women living in the filmmaker's house in a film heavily influenced by the work of filmmaker Sadie Benning.

About Comments

Reader comments on are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee. If you see an objectionable comment, click the "report abuse" button below it. We will delete comments containing inappropriate links, obscenities, hate speech, and personal attacks. Flagrant or repeat violators will be banned. See more about comments here.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.
