“A camera pans the cocktail hour behind a blind of potted palms and finds a lady in a Paris dress with runs in her nylons.” Join us for these tales of fierce and fallible women, told by a fabulous international collection of female storytellers. In Melanie Zoey Weinstein’s soulful Spanko (US 2018, 12 min), a woman finds a new portal of sexual expression. Two young women find their long-time friendship at a crossroads in Emma Weinstein’s poignant Candace (US 2017, 9 min). While on an urban jog, a woman is confronted with a shocking discovery and a dangerous choice in Clare Cooney’s Runner (US 2017, 13 min). In Oskar Resetti’s Tsar Bomba (Switzerland 2018, 14 min), a single mother is forced to confront the latent toxic masculinity that is under her own roof. On the verge of moving to the west, a wife must confront her personal demons in Nasim Kiani and Mostafa Mostafavi’s disturbing and heartbreaking Oculus (Iran 2018, 18 min). And, finally, in Giovana Olmos’s very sweet and sensitive Silvia in the Waves (Canada 2017, 13 min), a mother and son discuss the funeral details of their husband/father who had transitioned to her female identity. Topical and touching, it’s an assembly of shorts that are all standouts.
