The best entry in this shorts program is Amy Wendel's 35-millimeter Weightless, in which a poetry-loving elderly patient helps a nurse overcome her fear of swimming: the dialogue is smart, the tone subdued, and the acting graceful. Kathleen Man's 16-millimeter The Interview conveys a young man's paranoia as he's inducted into a faceless bureaucracy; the use of unusual sculptures and sterile Parisian architecture adds to the Orwellian feel. S. Casper Wong's 16-millimeter Shirts & Skins plays with stereotypes as two Asian-Americans—a nerdy engineer and a corporate lawyer—deal with their colleagues' perceptions of them and their perceptions of each other.
