Short Films 3 (2020)

Recommended ages: 12+
Program runtime: 75 min.

You’ve outgrown the kiddie pool, so take a dive into these often offbeat, at times hilarious, always thought-provoking shorts. Follow the stories of an insomniac bear and monkey on a mission (did we mention the mini Yeti?) in Nuit Cherie, and the Italian-born Senegalese teen questioning her identity in The School Trip.
