Making A Killing
by Val Bodurtha, dir. Natalie Pasquinelli: You don’t see serial killers in the news anymore. It’s not how it was in the 80s, the killer news coverage replaced by television. Nobody can name a prolific serial killer, but anyone can list their favorite serial killer shows at request. Making A Killing is a one-act comedy that asks, “How do the serial killers feel about that?”
Shades by Cynthia Campos Constanzo, dir. Megan Philippi: A comedic drama looking at what makes a family, and the disparity between those properly and improperly diagnosed and treated for mental health. In working together on a detective case, our protagonists shed light on the treatment of minorities and highlight the power family can offer to loved ones.
The Doll by Hayley Gruenspan, dir. Tempest Wisdom: A girl brings home her trans girlfriend to her supposedly liberal family. The situation quickly goes awry.
Carson by River MacLeod, dir. Hanna Kime: Three friends struggle with transphobia and suicide and to reclaim the meaning of family.
The Last Bus by Ellen Wiese, dir. Sophie Downes: Three former coworkers and a stranger waiting for the last bus at the end of the world. With the rest of everything hidden in a never-ending rain, they discuss call centers, confessions, and a carnivorous newcomer. A bus arrives, an ark is built, and the waters cover the earth.
