Director: Gregor Wilson

A famous jazz vocalist falls victim to dementia. Isolated from his wife and musical partner by the condition, he is thrown into a state of depression and anxiety, until a young musician reveals to him the power of music to recall emotion and restore dignity.

Director: Gio' Crisafulli

On the hottest day of summer, Yesenia, a disgruntled Washington Heights native, struggles to keep herself cool as she navigates the sexual politics of her home, the city streets, and her dating life. After having her morning thrown into a frenzy by her mothers nagging, she escapes the confines of her oppressive home to the more carefree demeanor of her best friend Carlos. Together, they venture down St. Nicholas in search of Dominican shaved ice to cool off, only to find themselves in a heated debate about the toxic masculinity in their culture, the gentrification of their hood, and Yesenias dating habits.
