"Harvest," about a man who confesses to his wife about having had an affair; "Kilroy Was Here," about an American WWII pilot who meets orphaned French children after his parachute becomes stuck in a tree; "The Tragedy of Glady," about a friendship between two teen girls that frays after one loses her parents.
Three short films from student filmmakers. The topics are a standoff at a gas station; a filmmaker's reluctance to compromise; and a high-school senior who tries to take advantage of his brother's death.
Films include “Fence Dogs,” which chronicles a town's decimation while searching for a runaway dog; “The Lure of the Dream,” which is based on the writings of Carl Jung; “Bus Stop,” which examines the plight of a retail worker; “Cats,” an experimental narrative short; and “The Universal Theories of the Duke of Zeppelin,” which hones in on a girl who, while walking her dog, contemplates existence, the universe and more.
Included: In “A Boy's Life,” four friends unite to protect their neighborhood from a gang of teens. Also: boot camp for juvenile offenders is examined in “Impact”; and “Laundry” explores a young man's attraction for a girl he chances upon in a Laundromat.
