Curated by Shiela Escalante
This program explores the many ways people express their love to one another. In the first short film, “Paperman” – a man falls in love with a woman he just meets and tries to get her attention in an unconventional way. The second film, “Stutterer” a man who can’t communicate without stuttering falls in love with a woman online and decides whether he’s brave enough to take this in real life. Both films explore the different ways of expressing one’s self and showing that love is a universal language we all speak.
“Paperman” (2012) by John Kahrs, 6 minutes and 33 seconds
“Stutterer” (2015) by Benjamin Cleary, 12 minutes
