Genre: Student Film
After working long days as a hospital janitor, world-weary Isabel cares for her sister, Lupita, whose cancer has returned with a vengeance. Isabel tries to remain optimistic about her sister’s chances for recovery, but when Lupita’s pain becomes unbearable, she must confront a difficult choice in this wrenching narrative short.
We asked our filmmakers some questions about them and their work. For further questions, join us at the designated post-screening Q+A!
Tani Paige Shukla:
1. What is your connection to the South?
2. Where did you get your inspiration for this work?
3. How did you start making films?
4. Did anything interesting or funny happen on set during the shooting?
5. What do you look forward to the most during Indie Grits?
I’m sincerely looking forward to meeting all the other Southern filmmakers at Indie Grits and seeing their stories of the South.
