“Clouds roll past and leave their thunder—Just a warning, a warning to be heard.” Not everything is as it seems and expectations are easily subverted in this collection of shorts. A gardening project reveals some darker truths in Maegan Houang’s In Full Bloom (US 2018, 10 min). Ursula Ellis’s Ava in the End (US 2019, 10 min) has a woman form an unlikely bond with her app. Two joggers in a park have a fateful encounter in Paul Urcioli’s Runners (US 2018, 16 min). A dad and his daughter share a touching outing in Max Walker-Silverman’s Lefty/Righty (US 2019, 12 min). A veterinarian’s assistant has a very tough day in Ilya Simakov’s Keep It Quiet (US 2019, 14 min). Dani Pearce’s Backpedal (Australia 2019, 5 min) explores a memory that finds deep resonance for one woman. Rich with emotion, this powerful assembly of stories is one you won’t soon forget.
