Since the coronavirus pandemic started, there have been many turns of phrase that have been repeated ad nasueum. One of those is the well-intentioned (or is it?) phrase "We Are All In This Together." I decided to look at those words and think about things a bit more intimately, changing it to "We Are In This Together." These stories are about partnerships: marriage, significant others, and the like. As with the short film block about families, you will see that some films will address this phrase with irony, and others will address it with sincerity. All of them use human bonds as the center of either anxiety or hope.

Bill arrives home early to surprise his wife Karen.

Filmed in a single-shot format that follows Eric Roberts's rapid descent into rampage and lets him do this thing - beautifully. The camera almost never leaves him, for good reason, and you wouldn't have it any other way. He's weird and fascinating and endlessly surprising. The end is the perfect denouement. -Programmer Laila Ayad
