“Words of strength and care and sympathy-I opened doors that would have blocked their way, I braved their cause to guide.” Films about human connection, in all its tender and tenuous forms, ground this special group of shorts. Annabelle Attanasio (TV’s Bull) directs and stars in Frankie Keeps Talking (US 2016, 7 min) about how liberating a bad date can be. A birthday greeting to their daughter opens old wounds for a couple in Arian Vazirdaftair’s Not Yet (Iran 2016, 15 min). A young Latin-American girl caught in refugee limbo must adjust to a new life and uncertain future in Monica Santis’s moving Towards the Sun (UK 2017, 20 min). Economic difficulty and industry in transition in the Louisiana bayou force some hard decisions for a family in Nailah Jefferson’s atmospheric Plaquemines (US 2016, 20 min). And the charming complexity of father-daughter love is perfectly encapsulated in J.R. Heffelfinger’s Seconds (Puerto Ri
