Tallgrass 2022 Short Takes 5: LITTLE SATCHMO and ANASTACIAS

This is the life of Sharon Preston-Folta. She is the daughter of Louis Armstrong. Her mother  was not Armstrong’s wife, but mistress whom he spent as much time with. Indeed it wasn’t until Preston-Fota saw her father on TV that she found out her parents weren’t married.

This is a solid portrait of a woman who lived for years in the shadows and her famous father. It will show you a side of Armstrong you never knew. It is also a heartbreaking portrait of a “broken family” in that once Preston-Folta was kind of cast aside since she wasn’t the “official” family.


The story of five women in Brazil who are struggling to deal with life, love and loss

This is a nice portrait of four women struggling to get by. I don’t know what more to say other than this is worth your time.
