Watch W-A-L-K in the NSI Online Short Film Fest

W-A-L-K | Comedy, 10:47, English, QC, 2015 | Director: Anna Sikorski

A delightful variation on a road movie, W-A-L-K follows preteen Clara as she embarks on a mission to master the art of walking in high-heeled shoes.

Taking place in Montreal during a hot and lazy summer day, Clara’s ambitions for feminine glory are complicated by the fact that it’s also her turn to take Eddie, the poorly-trained family dog, on his daily w-a-l-k. They set off together on a suburban adventure rife with disapproving adults and the ever-present stress of running into other dogs.

The film explores the transition from childhood to adolescence and how it can be at once both confusing and wonderful.
