Short film ‘Sh-h-h’

That’s should come as no surprise as it featured films made by local filmmakers and starring local talent. One of the shorts included in this block was Sh-h-h, directed by Elizabeth Billings.

But they forget all about their quarrel when Tom is awakened in the middle of the night by breaking glass. As he removes a handgun from the nightstand, he whispers to Brenda, “sh-h-h.” He checks on his teenaged daughter, and tells her to “sh-h-h” too. Unfortunately for Tom, the intruder disarms him and holds him Elizabeth Billings Band Brenda at gunpoint. But the story doesn’t end as you might suspect. Billings includes a clever plot twist. But sh-h-h. I won’t tell you how it ends. If you missed the screening, perhaps you’ll see it some day in the future for yourself.
