“See the same old faces, look at the same old skies. See them all with brand new eyes.” A treasure trove of shorts from around the world, all about women and directed by women. A woman has an unexpected encounter when camping in Clara Aranovich's Primrose (US 2015, 5 min). In Charlotte Schiøler's By Any Means A-veilable (France/Denmark 2014, 17 min), an apartment hunter goes to unusual lengths to find the perfect flat. A high school girl faces her classmates the day after a graphic picture of her goes viral in Pippa Bianco's Share (US 2015, 11 min). First dates can be minefields of decorum and double standards in Rory Uphold’s Traction (US 2015, 5 min). In Parisa Barani's powerful Ablution (Iran/Canada/US 2015, 16 min), a religious fundamentalist finds her beliefs at odds with her family and environment. And Emily Towers has a few surprises in store when she depicts an awkward reunion as a daughter and dad celebrate Father's Day (US 2015, 16 min).
