It's hard to say who is the stranger creature in this existential tragicomedy the unusually large and brilliantly feathered Ivory-Billed Woodpecker or Johnny Neander, the amateur poet who has made it his mission to track down the long-thought-extinct bird in the swamps of Eastern Arkansas. Unlike the countless fanatics that descended upon the area after the Ivory-Billed was allegedly spotted, Johnnys search seems to be much more personal and perverse, despite the fact that he really has no idea how to go about it.

A hilarious and often poignant portrait of a man lost in the world and his own skin, Woodpecker features the dark brilliance of Jon e. Hyrns (star of the celebrated documentary Johnny Berlin) and a soundtrack with original contributions from Colin Greenwood of Radiohead. Much like the bird itself, the film explores the intersection of fact and fiction, resulting in a hybridized and quixotic journey embracing hope, perception, and some very very strange birds.

Sex, Passion, Betrayal, Murder
Based on a true Story

A brilliant biochemistry student who is also a prostitute.
A brutally bludgeoned body buried naked in the snow.

Thus begins Winter of Frozen Dreams, a sordid love story and a macabre
web of blackmail, lust, and deceit. The Hoffman case was the first televised
murder trial in US history.

The true-life story of Barbara Hoffman, is complex and contradictory in every sense,
she was both a brilliant biochemistry student at the University of Wisconsin and Madisons most notorious
prostitute.
On a frigid, twenty-two below zero Christmas morning, Barbara Hoffmans (Thora Birch) distraught young fiancé, Jerry Davies (Brendan Sexton III) lead police investigators to a corpse, which only hours before, he had buried in a snow
bank. Lead by Detective Lulling (Academy Award winner Keith Carradine), the police investigators uncover the naked
and brutally bludgeoned body of Harry Berge. Davies desperately insists that
he is not a murderer and that he and Hoffman are guilty only of burying the
corpse of a stranger.

Shades of film noir blend with true crime, as Barbara Hoffman lives out her days in prison, refusing to give interviews or even go before the parole board.
