Interesting
3 December 2002 | by (Red Rock country) – See all my reviews

When I was quite young when my sister took me to the downtown art center where the director was showing this film. I think there were two versions of this. Both were pretty much the same but had a different scene here and there.

This short really shows how people in some small towns think and how they treat change. It really stuck in my mind afterwards. I dont know where you can find it or see it but its worth it.
