Sundance Shorts

Opens Jul 19, 2017

JULY 19-20 ONLY!

Each year our country's preeminent film festival, Sundance, gathers its most celebrated short-length films together into a feature-length program. Ragtag is excited to present the 2017 edition of this annual tradition, which features the directorial debut of Kristen Stewart alongside several prize winners. Each month, Ragtag and the Citizen Jane Film Festival spotlight a new, woman-directed film. This shorts program, which features four exciting young women directors, is July's "Citizen Jane Suggests" selection.

The full lineup:

"5 Films About Technology" (dir. Peter Huang, 5 minutes) Take a satirical look at the dumber side of technology.

"And The Whole Sky Fit In The Dead Cow's Eye" (dir. Francisca Alegría, 19 minutes) Emeteria is visited by the ghost of her patrón, Teodoro. She believes he has come to take her to the afterlife — but he has more devastating news.

"Come Swim" (dir. Kristen Stewart, 2017, 17 minutes) This is a diptych of one man's day, half impressionist and half realist portraits.

"Lucia, Before and After" (dir. Anu Valia. 14 minutes) After traveling 200 miles, a young woman waits out Texas's state-mandated 24-hour waiting period before her abortion can proceed.

"Night Shift" (dir. Marshall Tyler, dir. 15 minutes) Get a glimpse into a day in the life of a bathroom attendant in a Los Angeles nightclub.

"Pussy" (dir. Renata Gasiorowska, 9 min.). Alone at home one evening, a young girl decides to have a solo pleasure session — but not everything goes according to plan.

"Ten Meter Tower" (dir. Maximilien Van Aertryck and Axel Danielson, 16 minutes) People who have never been up a 10-meter diving tower must choose whether to jump or climb down in this entertaining study of people in a vulnerable position.
