France – 19 min. – directed by Varante Soudjian – French with English subtitles – North American Premiere
Four young women coincidentally meet on the same day after each one individually fails to commit a very serious personal act. Together they find communal strength to overcome their inner fears and move from darkness into light. Varante Soudjian won the Best Short Film Award at the 2008 Pomegranate Film Festival for his film SECOND WIND. He is one of France’s brightest young directors and his film at this year’s Festival is equally entertaining and haunting.
