Tribeca Shorts: CARLITO LEAVES FOREVER, HISTORY OF WHITE PEOPLE IN AMERICA: THESE AMERICAN TRUTHS, LA NORIA, LEARNING TO SKATEBOARD IN A WARZONE (IF YOU'RE A GIRL), and PEIXES
In the interior of Peru a young man leaves his village.
Small little film about going off to find love is visually stunning. It fragile thread of a narrative is a nice moment in time but I would be curious where this would go if turned into a feature.
HISTORY OF WHITE PEOPLE IN AMERICA: THESE AMERICAN TRUTHS
Latest part of HISTORY... is the story of Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemmngs. A stunning and damning piece of animation and a must see.
A young boy drawing and building a ferris wheel toy meets a monster.
A stunning piece of animation that will bring a tear to your eye....plus really cool monsters.
LEARNING TO SKATEBOARD IN A WARZONE (IF YOU'RE A GIRL)
The last thing we need is another film about young girls learning in Afghanistan, except when it is about young girls learning to skateboard as well. Utterly charming and heartfelt film will move you and put a smile on your face. A wonderful addition to a crowded sub-genre that not only teaches us something but gives us hope for humanity as well. A must.
A fish dreams of seeing what lies beyond the water.
Nice little tale I can't talk about since what I want to say concerns the ending,which is better seen then explained.
