Short films are ubiquitous, especially now with the internet and hand-held devices. However, the films online have been digitized into videos, and they most often play at low resolutions, usually the size of a postcard, surrounded by ads and other distractions. Their beauty is lost, and as a result they feel disposable. For this reason, Street Trees' artist and short-filmmaker Ted Knighton welcomes you to an evening of short films, as they were intended to be seen, on celluloid and in a communal setting.

Meshes of the Afternoon
