Cut to two soldiers in a car who are obviously on their way to make a death notification. As they approach the home of the deceased soldier, they see a body bag being loaded onto an ambulance about a block away. When they reach the front door, they knock and ring the bell but nobody answers. As time passes we realize that the young couple has been reunited, but not in this world. It was an incredibly powerful and haunting film, and I'm quite sure that my description does not do it justice.
If these films sound interesting, don't miss "Beyond the Film Fest" at the Visual Arts Center in Punta Gorda. On the third Wednesday of each month, the VAC will offer movie buffs the chance to screen some short films, some of which were shown at the Peace River Film Festival. Given the quality of shorts that were shown at the Festival, I am eager to see more. Don't forget the popcorn!
