Best Picks of The Month

The Best Picks of The Month highlight our Daily Short Picks that resonated the most with us and our audience. These are the best picks for the month of September 2023.

September offers a rich tapestry of compelling stories and themes. “IICWLIM: A Chapbook Film” by Ricardo Bouyett is an experimental exploration of queerness and the longing for a more accepting world, drawing from the poetry anthology “If I Could Write Love Into Men.” In “Friend Crush” by Alexandria Sherman, Maggie, a young New Yorker, grapples with identity while navigating an unconventional request in a new relationship. “The Butterfly Dream” by Andrés Aloi delves into existential contemplation as a successful tech entrepreneur questions the reality of his perfect life, much to the chagrin of his wife. Lastly, “Along Came Ruby” by Riccardo Suriano is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi tale following Ruby’s perilous journey to find her brother. Along the way, she encounters a mysterious old woman, and their shared experiences reveal a connection that transcends the boundaries of time and space, offering a profound exploration of grief and resilience in a shattered world. Each film presents a unique and thought-provoking narrative, exploring themes of identity, existence, and human connection.
