Director's statement

Director's statement

This collection of shorts each uniquely showcases the interplay between one's own instincts and the influence of the status quo, whether through implicit expectation or received wisdom. The line-up opens with a deceptively simple but perfectly executed comedy premise: a mom in a minivan, reaching her breaking point. It is followed by a darkly twisted and beautifully shot depiction of an uneasy blind date, a touching and visually rich portrayal of a pair of best friends navigating the tensions between their religious beliefs and the bar scene, and a documentary whose structure creates a unique vantage point on the expectations and realities of women reaching a milestone age. Next, an engaging visual spoken word poem centering female sexuality, a humorous take on an intergenerational political divide in an immigrant family told through engaging performances, closing with a vivid representation of an often indescribable feeling of creeping unease and accompanying doubt familiar to many.
