An uneven program of earnest, melodramatic shorts. Kevin J. Shaw directed the best of the four (Jeremiah Strong, an affecting portrait of a homeless man trying to keep body and soul together in Nashville) as well as the weakest (How I Got Over, the crudely made saga of a mother and daughter who clash over the daughter's having conceived a child with her Asian-American lover). Mateen Kemet's Silence, an experimental take on another problematic pregnancy, is more resonant as drama; A Single Rose, Hanelle M. Culpepper's period piece about the blues-singing young wife of an absent railroad man, is overly stylized. 81 min.
