Movie: Ave Maria
Believe it or not, this film about an Israeli Jewish settler family crashing (literally, with their car) into a silent Catholic convent in the West Bank is by far the lightest and funniest of this year's live shorts. It was entertaining but pretty superficial in what could have been a nuanced portrayal of how living in a place with such religious tensions affects daily life.
Availability: Head this way to learn how/where to see the shorts.
Short Film (Live Action): Enh. It was fine and amusing but not up to the caliber of some of the others.
