This program of compelling directors will leave you alight with feeling. In these five shorts, a river is the meeting place for spirits and humans; painful beauty treatments ask to be witnessed; hands guide fragmented images on an overhead projector; a debt collector avoids home on Christmas Eve; and stinging moments in the lives of different girls and women are explored. Brief poetry readings will accompany the films. A Q&A with attending filmmakers follows the screening.
Programmed by Raven Jackson.
