Shorts Program 1

99 minutes

Two teens explore an abandoned German Nazi resort while a group of sexually charged friends in NYC can’t even muster up the energy to leave the house. Rounding out the program is a lesbian Godard-ian tale of a boss and a secretary, a hilarious poison pen letter to Dan Savage, and a delicate story about a young Asian man who returns home to visit his family and his past.
