The USA Film Festival will present a series of Student Shorts. A lonely street thug yearns for a better life in Melissa Hickey’s Ni-Ni; an older man strives to overcome his technological ineptness for love in Carla Dauden’s Mr. Polman Wants to Fit In; a court jester faces possible death in Yair Shvartz’s Life is No Joke; a young girl’s fate is in the hands of the townspeople in Tara Atashgah’s For the Birds (inspired by a true story); Peter Pan confronts a harsh reality in Kellen Moore’s East of Kensington; a vacuum cleaner salesman must decide how far he will go to please his customers in Jennie Allen’s Relics; a young girl masquerades as a boy to make ends meet in Puja Maewal’s Jaya; and David Berget dramatizes the last hours of Jim Jones and The Peoples Temple Church in Jonestown.
