4960 by Wing-Yee Wu made it into the YouTube Screening Room. The New York based director was recently invited to represent the United States as part of “Festival Internazionale del Cinema di Frontera” in Italy.

Synopsis:

The faster you run, the more likely you are to stay alive.

Aida and Josef try to communicate between the distance from Point A to Point B. An exposed space, clearly visible to snipers, prevents them from doing so. Set during the Sarajevo siege, shot in NYC, award winning short film 4960 earned Jury comments: “Brutal, riveting, fearless . . . Profound depiction of human hunger for connection, scathing social commentary . . . Dead on convergence of ethics and aesthetics.”
