The Oscars are over and there's a winner. After seeing a program on short films last fall, Handsome and I were very excited when one of our favorite theaters showed the 2015 short live action films.
Boogaloo and Graham by Michael Lennox and Ronan Blaney: Jamesy and Malachy are presented with two baby chicks to raise by their soft-hearted father.
Butter Lamp by Hu Wei and Julien Feret : A photographer and his assistant photograph the inhabitants of a remote Tibetan village.
Parvaneh by Talkhon Hamzavi and Stefan Eichenberger : An Afghan teenager living in a refugee center in Switzerland encounters difficulties wiring money to her family and asks a young Swiss woman for help.
The Phone Call by Mat Kirkby and James Lucas: A woman working for a crisis center phone line receives a call from a suicidal older man.

Aya by Oded Binnun and Mihal Brezis : A young woman waiting at an airport has an unexpected encounter with an arriving passenger.View Trailer /▶
Don't underestimate how fabulous short films are. All were distinctive and very well done. We picked The Phone Call, although Aya was very good. Parvaneh has me worrying like a mother. The Butter Lamp was very interesting and cute. Boogaloo and Graham was hiliarious.
