Lily Topples the World
8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Lily Topples the World follows 20 year-old sensation Lily Hevesh, the world’s most acclaimed domino toppler and the only girl in her field, as she rises as an artist, role model, and young woman. Directed by Jeremy Workman, whose documentary The World Before Your Feet was an audience favorite at RiverRun in 2018, the film is a lovely coming-of-age story cloaked within a unique portrait of an artist, a story of how passion and artistry can make dreams come true, and an unlikely American tale of a quiet adopted Asian girl who transforms into a global artistic force with over a billion YouTube views. Sponsored by the Carolina Classic Fair. Screenings at Marketplace Drive-In sponsored by Parkway Lincoln

Summertime
12:00 am - 2:00 am

Over the course of a hot summer day in Los Angeles, the lives of 25 young Angelenos intersect in this Sundance standout from exciting young filmmaker Carlos Lopez Estrada, director of Blindspotting and this year’s animated Disney smash Raya and the Last Dragon. A skating guitarist, a tagger, two wannabe rappers, an exasperated fast-food worker, a limo driver–they all weave in and out of each other’s stories. Through poetry they express life, love, heartache, family, home, and fear. One of them just wants to find someplace that still serves good cheeseburgers.
