2001 CUFF: Hybrid

Monteith McCollum’s Hybrid is a profile of Milford Beeghly, the inventor of hybrid seed corn, which after watching this movie, I still don’t know what that is.

2001 CUFF: Coil

Coil by first-time filmmaker Jesse Heffring has an interesting conceit: It’s shot as though everything was filmed via security, TV and home video cameras.

2001 CUFF: Wormwood

Wormwood is Larry Foster’s scathing attack on the Hollywood “machine” and is a cross between Citizen Kane, The Wizard of Oz and John Waters’ Desperate Living.
