Advice for Women by Ronit Rubinstein
A darkly hilarious take on the barrage of often conflicting messages that women receive about how to exist in a man’s world — with a cautionary twist exploring where these contradictions might lead.
Kid Stuff by Chris Shaw Swanson
When their son’s school art project appears to represent a makeshift gun, two parents are forced to examine the boundaries of social responsibility and creative expression.
