Short Films Two (2021)

Runtime: 80 min. | Recommended Ages: 8+
With shorts for ages 8+, Short Films Two features deeper themes and multilingual films with English subtitles. Stop motion equals nonstop action in Wild Lea, as a feral Colombian cat goes from lonely to loved, but can she learn to settle down with her new makeshift family? And when Parisian Vanille is forced to spend the summer with her auntie in Guadeloupe, she just may realize that big city ways are not nearly as spirited as she discovers her Carribean roots and uncovers a big mystery. In the doc Dear Future Me, 6th graders wrote letters to their future selves; fast-forward to 2020 when the now 12th graders re-read them with alternately surprising, bittersweet, and hilarious results.
