The title of Underground (2003), Aimee Lagos and Kristin C. Dehnert's suspenseful short, has a hidden meaning related to the closing quote, from Anais Nin: “We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.” Anne Ramsay plays a subway rider shadowed by two sinister characters; our anxiety for her nicely sets up a surprise ending. Austrian Marie Kreutzer's Un Peu Beaucoup about two sisters who fall for the same guy, also ends with a twist. Marty Mericka's Happy Hour (2003) is a droll vignette about singles dishing over cocktails. Also on the bill: Unsynchables at Any Age, Victoria Foster's affectionate documentary about a California swim team; Virginie Danglades's darkly comic Sparks; and Sabine Marte's abstract Stewardessenclip. 100 min.
