One of the many encouraging results of having more women writing, directing, editing and starring in new films is that we are seeing a wider variety of uncategorizable women onscreen. In this program of short films we celebrate that progress, showcasing shorts films that aren’t afraid to dive into the complexities of the female experience and explore topics of jealousy, desire, loneliness and what--if anything--women owe one another. In a visual language that is unique to their perspectives, these filmmakers expose deep-rooted power structures and injustices, making them impossible to ignore. Alternatingly biting, poignant, funny, and frightening, they explore the confusing joys and unpredictable dangers that color the lives of women in the modern world.
