“And it's just like the ocean under the moon, it's the same emotion that I get from you.” Sometimes all a good story needs is two compelling characters, as each of these shorts deftly illustrates. A trans daughter has a difficult reunion with her mother in Loli Menezes’s poignant Selma After the Rain (Selma Depois da Chuva) (Brazil 2019, 11 min). A round of Seven Minutes in Heaven unearths some harsh truths for a pair of teens in Kaily Smith Westbrook’s Just Between Us (US 2018, 14 min). An unlikely couple share a soulful evening together in Julian Turner’s lovely May (US 2018, 11 min). A protective older sister spends a trying day with her younger brother in Emily Gularte’s Lizard (Lagartija) (Guatemala 2018, 8 min). Star-crossed lovers reveal perhaps too much in a lurid liaison in Amber Schaefer’s It’s Been Too Long (US 2019, 8 min). Nicolas Collins’ Prittyboi (US 2019, 4 min) is a love letter to the Bay Area and to romance on its own terms. And an African American couple tries to recover from a terrible loss in Eric Pumphrey’s searing Evelyn x Evelyn (US 2019, 13 min). Don’t miss this remarkable tribute to the universality of human connection.
