Description

Relationships are tricky and emotions even trickier in these stories of love and lust. A New Year’s Eve party ends in broken resolutions for best friends Annie and Austin, who pursue romantic encounters with less-than-ideal partners in BROAD STROKES; A LACK OF DATING IN BROOKLYN tells the story of a young woman’s realization that her inability to have a lasting relationship may be her own fault; while in SPAGHETTI ROMANCE Abby’s relationship it put to the test when her first meeting with her girlfriend’s mother goes poorly. Mayhem runs rampant in Chicago-made short CAROL SUPPORT GROUP when one woman embodies the title character of the support group’s obsession, theTodd Haynes’ film Carol; and two woman must face reality when their fantasies keep them from having meaningful relationships in SHELBY’S VACATION. A roller coaster of highs and lows, these shorts get at the heart of the complicated mess of modern relationships. This screening is co-presented by Pride Films and Plays.
