50% is a quirky, campy autobiographical short that explores identity with the lighthearted confidence of being true to oneself. A closeted woman argues with her mother over legalizing gay marriage, and then both are forced to face their own fears and the ironic behavior of being in denial in Ballot. Private Jane Cross is quickly noticed during her training by Master Corporal Maryann Kirk, and for more than her skills on the battlefield in Citizen Jane. In Election Night, a politician’s family awaits the final 350 votes to come in on election eve. Nerves rattle the family into a comic whirlwind of wild theories, long-held secrets, and a revelation that nobody saw coming. In Notes from There, Pepca and Martine are lovers torn apart by the immigration arrest of Martine. In a minimal enclosed setting, two women are wrestling, or play-fighting in On Your Feet, Woman! Cloistered in depression, one girl’s sadness seeps into the apartment below, flooding the other’s dreams in Sleep Awake.
