Event Notes

Come see Sheldon Schiffer's latest short fiction film. Nailed! explores the changing cultural demographic of urban Atlanta by following the personal experiences of Branca, a Brazilian immigrant, who gets entangled with the exploits of a con-artist looking to swindle her out of money for marriage. Branca seeks to find true love and a green card with an American man. She discovers that cultural integration costs more than money, and that the American man of her dreams is as elusive as the American dream itself.
