February 25 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Fallout by Laura King
directed by Steve Goldklang
Two damaged strangers take shelter from an unknown menace in a relic from the Cold War. In the claustrophobic confines of a family bomb shelter, Anna and David will have to decide if what is outside is more terrifying than what they are hiding inside themselves.

Man on the Street by Marilyn Bennett
directed by John Wilson
A city street, early evening. A man in an overcoat comes to the aid of a woman being mugged. A scuffle ensues and the man slumps to the ground. A few minutes later several people walk by, including Karen and Thad. They notice the man but walk on. Who was he? What happened to him after they walked away? Should they have stopped? Karen struggles to find the answers.
