BSDFF - Steven Bognar & Julia Reichert Retrospective
7:30 PM
The Roxy
Foundry Night Shift
A single factory in Ohio produces the steel frames that support Steinway pianos. In the wee hours, when electricity demand is down, two men move through a vast, darkened landscape of blinding sparks and molten ore, stoking immense furnaces and pouring red-hot liquid into molds that will cool and form the sturdy base.

Picture Day
One school. 601 kids. 12 frames per kid. What do you get? In Steven Bognar’s hands, you get a playful, funny parade of images that celebrates the documentary urge and reveals the range of possibilities contained in half a second’s worth of pictures. Expressive and complex, these youthful reflections emphasize the significance of documenting our lives and holding on to moments from the past.

No Guns for Christmas
Steven Bognar, Julia Reichert, 2014, USA, 7 minutes
Based on two police shootings in Ohio, this short documentary questions whether toy guns can really be innocent gifts.

Last Reel
Steven Bognar, 2015, USA, 9 minutes
The Little Art Theatre in Ohio, faces a fundamental shift: convert to digital projection and relinquish its beloved 35mm projectors or risk closing. Letting go of celluloid is a painful transition for owner Jenny and head projectionist Andy, who have been at the theatre since the 1970s. 35mm projection is an art form––one that may, sadly, cease to exist.

Bognar, Julia Reichert, 2012, USA, 18 minutes
Sheri “Sparkle” Williams has been a star dancer with the legendary Dayton Contemporary Dance Company for nearly 40 years—a record unheard of in the professional dance community—and she is one of the few dancers outside of New York City to have been honored with the prestigious Bessie Award for Individual Performance. When this powerhouse dancer suffers her first serious injury, she’s forced to consider whether she has the will to return to the stage as her 50th birthday approaches.

Making Morning Star
Steven Bognar, Julia Reichert, 2015, USA, 37 minutes
MAKING MORNING STAR presents a behind-the-scenes look at the joys and challenges of developing a new American opera. Featuring composer Ricky Ian Gordon, librettist William M. Hoffman, and director Ron Daniels, the film captures the delicate balance of personalities during an intense collaboration. Will the opera be ready on time?
