Madagascar, a film by Bastien Dubois, is a journey through Africa. Very few films, let alone short films, succeed in capturing a culture that is so rich, but this film does it with much ‘drama.’ The film takes the viewer on a biopic journey and shows everything that had caught the eye of the storyteller. In the case of Madagascar, the eye of the storyteller captures a range of cultural gems that, again, very few filmmakers can claim to have captured with so much depth.

Zero, a film by Christopher Kezelos, portrays the issues of prejudice in society. It is an animation about people being classified in numbers – a symbol of one’s status. Zero, the lead character, is an outcast his whole life and struggles to find his place in the world he lives in; along the way, he meets another Zero and the story unfolds. This film is about showing courage, hope, and the power of love. Overall, the graphics are astounding, the animation was very “cute”, and the film grasps the soul.

A Cut Above, by Alessandro Piedimonte, is about aging, death, the after-life, love, loneliness, hope, marriage and spirituality. It shows an elderly man closing up his barbershop when he comes across pictures of his deceased wife. As he gazes at the pictures, he reminisces about the wonderful times he had with her and cries. He is so sad and lonely and wishes and hopes to see her again. Overall, this film is very touching and sad – yet, happy at the same time.
