The Samaritans 2015

Directed by John Bryant

A salesman faces the most difficult and important negotiation of his life. Featuring performances by Mark Reeb, Heather Kafka, and Bill Wise. Cinematography by Mike Washlesky, Edited by Don Swaynos.

"The program ends with its most arresting piece. John Bryant’s "The Samaritans” was shot near Marfa and features a most scathing examination of religion gone horribly wrong. It is cringeworthy in multiple ways."

SXSW 2015 Jury Award Winner - Best Texas Short

The Overbrook Brothers

Directed by John Bryant

Jason comes home for Christmas and his arch-rival brother, Todd, has a big surprise waiting for him—but it's not a gift.
