Project Descriptions

“Fathers And Sons”
In this coming of age story, a high school student struggles to pursue his passion for filmmaking. Josh, now entering 11th grade, questions his path, pre-determined by his parents and teachers. His passive aggressive principle, tasked with disciplining Josh for his poor student attendance, ultimately sees himself reflected in young boy’s pursuit of his passion.

“Opening Up”
After many years of being separated, Michael visits his brother, Robert, who has recently been placed in a psychiatric ward. During his visit, he encounters a woman named Hannah, who mistakes him for a patient in the ward. Through the confusion and resulting interaction, Michael learns how to better open up to his brother.

“Never Too Late”
During her daily morning run, Molly literally runs into her old high school best friend, Noah, and the two decide to go out to lunch the next day to catch up. During their meal they laugh about their time in high school until Noah inquires why Molly cut ties. This opens the discussion of Molly’s love for Noah, and in turn Noah’s love for Molly.

Two women in their 70s, Phoebe and Isabella, meet in a doctor’s office waiting room and realize that their pasts overlap. As they travel together down memory lane, they learn they both dated the same man at the same time in college. This discovery reopens old wounds and inflicts new ones, and unexpected emotions bubble to the surface.
