Favorite short film of the summer!
As many of you know, Sherene was traveling a lot this summer to many film festivals for her short film "Cool For You", hence the 3-month hiatus from this newsletter. But, we're back at it and will be coming to your inbox on a monthly basis again, at least until next summer. In addition to amazing travels through Europe, great get togethers with old friends, and winning a Jury Award for Best Youth Film in Switzerland (see photo), here's a fun trailer to the funniest short film seen at all the festivals this summer. Check out the trailer to "Naptime".
This is for all the parents out there who survived the pandemic. And if you want to watch the entire 9-minute film, the director gave permission to share the film: https://vimeo.com/565174685
