Sadly, there is no trailer for “Billion Dollar Babies: The True Story of the Cabbage Patch Kids,” directed by Andrew Jenks. But this description should give you a good idea:
“This documentary tells the unbelievable but true story of the kids who stole America’s heart… the Cabbage Patch Kids – and how they set the wheels in motion for modern-day Black Friday. The film debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival last month and tracks the CPK origin story – from its folk art origins at Appalachian craft fairs to mass production, big box stores, TV movies, and inevitable flameout.”
And last but not least, there is a series of short films being shown:
- “The Beat of The Heart,” directed by Jeremy Frindel
- “The UFO Girl,” written and directed by Shane Devon
- “Flobic,” directed by Gary Leo Miller
- “The Silence Between,” directed by Noah Griffin
