When Life Changes
- Short Film Programs
- 57 mins
Whether we are adolescents, young adults, middle-aged, or older adults, life is constantly changing. Much of the time, these shifts take place so slowly that we barely register them. These short films capture moments when characters realize that life has suddenly changed, and that their identity, thoughts, and actions must also be altered. Be prepared for wild twists, the discovery of superpowers, the breaking of generational divides, and facing ghosts from the past.
Program curated by Eric Hung and Ellis Choi
