Make your way downtown, walking fast, faces pass and I'm NFFTY bound! Friday's featured shorts block takes you on an emotional journey through life, love, and the psychological effects of solitary confinement. You know I'd walk a thousand miles if I could just see this screening, tonight.

Trapped in a sort of domestic hellscape, on opposite sides of the same wall, Eva and Desiree must find a way to survive. The two characters develop diverging approaches to their circumstances but converge at a point of emotional vulnerability. "Two Birds" explores the psychological effects of solitary confinement and pulls the larger matrix of gender and domesticity into focus.
Linnea Ritland - 22, Kyle Vollstaedt - 24; Courtney Verwold - 24
Everything's Great! is a comedy-drama about an awkward, hapless lesbian who bounces between a messy not-relationship relationship and her alcoholic-dad-soaked home life, trying to find stability in others—and eventually finding it in herself.
