Women's Mixed Shorts
Cocoon, The Devil is in the Details, August in the City, Bicultural, Encuentro, Waffles

This collection of 6 shorts pays tribute to the yearnings of first love to the heartbreak of saying goodbye. China: In Cocoon, 11-year-old Qingqing lives with her mom in the peaceful city of Wuhan. When she discovers her mom’s oddly close relationship with a female friend, she discovers a secret that will unravel her peaceful family life. France: In The Devil is in the Details, it’s 1859 and Alexina, a trainee school teacher in the young girl’s convent, suffers from unbearable pains. After examination, the doctor finds out she is a hermaphrodite. According to him, since masculine prevails over all, Alexina is a man. She has no other choice than leave her school as quickly as possible, giving up her closest friend, Henriette. United States: In August in the City, two young women find themselves completely drawn to each other but one fears the repercussions of society in 1978 Brooklyn. Torn between the 'perfect' daughter that her strict traditional family believes her to be and the open-minded free spirit that she is, a second-generation Filipino-American must make a move to declare her identity in Bicultural. Claudia's night out with friends is disrupted by an encounter with the captivating Isabel in Encuentro. In Waffles, Gina learns via her early-morning Facebook feed that the woman lying beside her might literally be the enemy.
