A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature
This Academy Award Winner for Best Live Action Short tells the story of Ali (Maria Dizzia), a mother of young children who has grown frustrated with her daily routine and husband (Greg Keller). But her life is shaken up when two free-spirited twenty-somethings move in across the street and she discovers that she can see into their apartment.
