Description

Till Then (Germany 18 min)
Directed by Benjamin Wolff
Albert and Marta, both in their late 70s, live across the street from one another in a bustling section of Berlin’s Mitte. Every day the two neighbors meet – each in their perspective windows – at nine a.m. to watch the world unfold below them. One morning, the clock strikes nine but there is no sign of Albert. Tapping into a well of courage, Marta crosses social and personal boundaries and makes a trip to the other side of the street.  What will she find there?

The Apothecary (USA 17 min)
In an impoverished former mining town in the American Southwest, the one oasis of activity is The Apothecary Shoppe — the sole pharmacy within 4,000 square miles. Don is the druggist and he gamely occupies multiple roles as surrogate doctor, life counselor and community benefactor. His sanguine public persona, however, belies a long-suffered private pain for which there is no drug, no cure and no relief…With invited director Helen Hood Scheer

LINES  (USA 11 min)
This short film by WCFF alum writer-director Amy Jo Johnson  tells the story of a woman’s trip to the dermatologist’s office for a simple procedure, only to find herself questioning her age and appearance.  It is a light-hearted, heartfelt comedy about embracing all our little wrinkles, and keeping our perspectives grounded.  With director Amy Jo Johnson in person
