NYFF 52- Liz’s Review: ‘Shorts Program 2’ is full of delight, fright, and insight

nyff New York Film Festival 2014

While I was not afforded to time to attend last week’s first round of Shorts, today I had the pleasure of seeing The NYFF52 Shorts Program 2, a collection of really well done films. Engrossing, never dull, and surely surprising. Shorts are always a bit of a challenge to chat about. They are, after all, not long in length, so I’ve decided to give you a quick and yes, short, description below the teasers and photos…

The NYFF52 Shorts Program 2 contain the stories of a young girl tainted by the mistakes of a selfish family, two brothers reuniting only to discover they are different people, an assassin hiding behind family obligations, the aftermath of a people forced to leave their land, the tragic story of a woman who feels lighter than air (My personal favorite) and the smuggling of childhood memories. Sound intriguing? You bet. MUST SEE.

About Liz Whittemore

Liz grew up in northern Connecticut and was memorizing movie dialogue from Shirley Temple to A Nightmare on Elm Street at a very early age. She will watch just about any film all the way through (no matter how bad) just to prove a point. A loyal New Englander, a lover of Hollywood, and true inhabitant of The Big Apple.
