Season 6, Episode 7 Fine; Doki-Doki

First Aired: December 21, 2004

Two dramatic shorts: A married, suburban factory worker comes to terms with his life in “Fine”; and a Tokyo commuter makes connections with her fellow straphangers in “Doki-Doki.” Both were made by student filmmakers: “Fine” earned Michael Downing a 2003 Student Film Academy Award from the American Film Institute, while “Doki-Doki,” Chris Eska's masters-thesis film, won a UCLA Spotlight Award.
