Actor and author Stephen Tobolowsky hosts this line-up of eight short films with common themes of loss, and life at the crossroads and cross-purposes.

A young woman tries to get a handle on life’s baggage in Eden Sher’s outrageous The Suitcase; Milco Mancevski’s Thursday delivers a sharp commentary on today’s impersonal, tech-driven world; a young boy finds retreat in the art of dance while dealing with his parents’ acrimonious divorce in Ralph Macchio’s Across Grace Alley; a grieving father tries to cope with his wife’s death in Henry Ian Cusick’s Dress; a lone farmer with no one to pass his legacy to struggles with the line between steadfastness and futility in the Funk Brothers’ visually poetic Looms; Charles Haid stars in Tim Guinee’s stunning One Armed Man, based on the Horton Foote short story; and Kentucky plantation slaves and overseers come to an uneasy accord in Justin Liberman’s hypnotic Tobacco Burn.

Filmmakers will be in attendance.
