Must See Shorts Part 2 - SIS and Little Children, Big Words

Decidedly different in tone from the (stellar) shorts mentioned earlier, but equally worth seeing, are SIS and Little Children, Big Words. If provocative cinema is your thing you'll certainly want to check these out. Two of the most daring films screening at the 30th Atlantic Film Festival, both revolve around childrens' misunderstanding of  the adult world and words. Contrasting the innocence of being a kid with the complex and sometimes harmful actions of adults, these films explore big themes (including parenthood, sexuality and childhood perception) with uncompromising honesty. Both represent the short film form at its very best. (posted by Programmer Erin Oakes)
