La Vida Es Cortos / Life Is Shorts
A unique festival that presents short plays and short films to celebrate and showcase the Latinx community, its artists, and its stories. Short films and short plays are seldom seen by the general public but even more rare is seeing Latinx artists in Houston's prominent theatre and film scene. In its third year, the festival will evolve by including dance theatre performances and short dance films to create a Latinx multidisciplinary experience never seen before.
The 4th annual La Vida Es Cortos / Life Is Shorts Festival will take place on December 2 - 4, 2022.

Aster has two goals: hike the Appalachian Trail and eat. These seem like possible goals until you realize Aster has never been camping before and has struggled for years with an eating disorder.
