The Films

Gravity
Alfonso Cuarón | US, UK | 91

With Sandra Bullock, George Clooney. Cuarón’s astonishing big-screen adventure, which earned the director an Academy Award, is a depiction of life in the midst of profound, terrifying aloneness. A survival story told from the perspective of an astronaut, played by a committed Sandra Bullock, after a technical malfunction leaves her stranded in space. An uncanny visual experience, Gravity moves and feels like no other film before or since. Rated: PG-13

Nose Hair
Louis Morton | US | 10

Featuring the voices of Jayden Mason, Eastaugh, Ryan Lacey. This charming animated short follows a young boy with anosmia—loss of smell (a common symptom of COVID-19)—who learns to use the condition to his advantage. Nose Hair was produced with support from a grant awarded by USC in partnership with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Not Rated

Distemper
Elias Plagianos | US | 18

With Abigail Hawk and Chiké Okonkwo. This short was inspired by the true story of LGBTQ icon Dr. Louise Pearce, a pathologist who, in 1918, helped find a cure for sleeping sickness and saved an estimated two million lives. Produced with support from an award by the North Fork TV Festival and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Not Rated
