FIRST ACT PROGRAM THE PASSPORT, 15min., China, Drama/Film Noir Directed by Olivier Hero Dressen Somewhere in a big city, a man wakes up in a dark alley with no memory of who he is or how he got there.

SECOND ACT PROGRAM – COMEDY A DOG’S STORY, 7min., USA, Comedy Directed by Jill D’Agnenica “A Dog’s Story” is an absurdist short that tells the tragi-comic tale of an old dog who contemplates his bleak future after being laid off from his security job. The Dog has made a slide presentation of his current predicament and how he got here — an all-too-frequent story that many of us have also experienced in this new competitive economy where jobs are being replaced by automation and being too old can leave you marginalized.

THE GET TOGETHER, 12min., USA, Comedy Directed by Caitlin Dahl A wholesome middle-aged couple from Rhode Island have been invited over to a very successful and eccentric Hollywood record producer’s house with his much younger wife to plan the wedding of their children. As the two couples start to get to know each other, their difference seem to melt away with the help of accidentally injected edible marijuana.
