Where R U From
Directed by Junghyun Park, Jersey City, NJ, 1:44
"WhereRUFrom(2016) is a self-portrait of the artist’s origins, her true beginning. Curiosity about childbirth and chromosomal sex determination inspired the project’s narrative. Consider that a man has two distinct chromosomes: X and Y, while a woman has 2 chromosomes that are the same: X and X. Imagine a race then between the X and Y chromosomes. Whoever gets to the egg first decides the child’s sex!"

A Subway Story
Directed by Eugene Kolb, Brooklyn, NY, 5:00, Brooklyn Premiere!
Told 3 years on, two people recount the story of how they met on the New York City Subway.

Under the City the Blue Bag Dropped
Directed by Thomas W. Campbell, NY, NY, 2:58, Brooklyn Premiere!
In the city we travel underground every day to get to work - and to get to so many other places. Countless people pass each other, with barely an encounter. Sometimes our reserve is broken and we manage to connect with others. Under the City the Blue Bag Dropped is an animated story of one such connection.

Player Two is a short animation that explores the relationship that develops between two brothers of differing age growing up, and how video games foster that bond.

DRONE

Ring Around the Mulberry Bush
Directed by Nicholas D'Agostino, NY, 9:59, Brooklyn Premiere!

There's Too Many Of These Crows
Directed by Morgan Miller, Brooklyn, NY, 3:50
A film about aggression and escalation.  The narrative initially concerns a poacher and his wife hunting crows in a wide open field.  Set roughly in 1913.

Our Crappy Town
Directed by Andy London, LIC, NY, 8:36, Brooklyn Premiere!
In 1986, Andy London had a small, forgettable role in the Glen Cove High School production of Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town”. But what happened when the curtains closed...is the stuff of legend.
