We heart shorts
Short film programs are so much better than features in many ways. You get to see 7, 8, 9, sometimes 10 different films in the same amount of time you would be seeing 1 feature length film. We're showing two great shorts programs today. Also later at the AFI is Flying on One Engine, one of the best documentaries of the festival, which was featured in the WP Express on Thursday. You won't want to miss seeing the subject of the film, an Indian octogenarian surgeon, perform operations for 12 hours at a time, from a wheelchair, and still have time left to dis Al Gore AND Mother Teresa from his larynx-less throat (he has to speak through his esophagus).
