Sophie and Sarge

Two short films. “Sophie” by Alvaro Aro, is a descent into a frightening fantasy realm. Sophie finds herself somewhere strange and confronted by a deranged “Chancellor” and an even madder “Queen.” “Sarge” by Benjamin Dewhurst is the story of a WWI vet, in a senior living facility, haunted by guilt from his role in the Normandy landing. Balancing pathos with humor, “Sarge” is a powerful portrait of guilt, forgiveness and love.

This series takes an in-depth look at St. Louis area filmmakers and their films.
