Caroline & Jim (2021)
Caroline & Jim It’s another one of those nights. Things seemed okay, but then went wrong again. During an evening out on the town, Caroline and Jim get into an argument. Like they always do. But it’s not just words: they fight, leave, get lost, find each other and are back at the beginning. Blame the alcohol. Or the drugs. Or the other one. But never yourself. Inspired by “Caroline says I” and “Caroline says II” written by Lou Reed, “Caroline & Jim” is a short movie about a couple that can’t stay together, but also can’t leave.

Bella (known as Bluebell to her friends) has an unpleasant past and most of her family is in jail, Avery’s a killer dancer but can’t catch a ball to save his life and is teased for it daily, Abcd’e (affectionately nicknamed Alphabet, even though it’s ironic) is quite intelligent, but being severely dyslexic, she can’t read a thing. Alexander’s adopted and while he’s got a great adoptive family with plenty of other adopted siblings, sometimes his anger at his biological parents threatens to take over. Cyrus has already got an alcoholic mom, but when his brother Ben suddenly can’t be found one morning, his journal shoved under his bed reveals that he may have been kidnapped by his trusted boyfriend, AJ. After gathering evidence and finding where AJ may have taken Ben, Cyrus and the rest of the crew heads off to find him and get him back, but what they find out ends up being more heartbreaking than they thought.

The Big Dream
Shot in the streets of New York City, The Big Dream is an experimental documentary shortfilm that explores the depths of our dreams and the desire to always become something bigger than what we are. In our desperate search to find our place in the chaos, we begin to loose our vision and very essence of life; the one conceived by the direct impulses from the world that enfolds just before our eyes.
