OUR NECK OF THE WOODS (Rob Connolly | Los Angeles, CA | 17 min.)

A lonely manufacturer of ridiculous lawn-ornaments realizes the emptiness of his life when a foreign refugee joins the workforce and unintentionally enchants him with her haunting singing, withdrawn thoughtfulness, and the very fact of her otherness. Based on the short story from "Bluebirds Used to Croon in the Choir" by Joe Meno, this darkly comic fiction film is about the misguided chances we take when forced into a life of quiet desperation. mold-o-form.com
