One of Cheryl’s Crazy Dreams or Part of Last Night’s NELAArt Short Film Series?
(With apologies to McSweeney’s Internet Tendency.)
  1. Italian students march in lockstep through a lecture hall to turn in their ballots before realizing the election is a fraud.
  2. Cats, rats and ferrets wage species warfare on the roof of an apartment building.
  3. A young woman hikes through the snow in search of a lost parent.
  4. A girl’s mother grooms her to be a prize-winning knitter.
  5. A couple tries to hide a runaway German prostitute in their garage during a dinner party.
  6. One bookshelf-lined attic stands in for three different apartments.
  7. A woman is reunited with her elementary-school crush on a bus trip to Mexico.
  8. A man with a handlebar mustache tap dances.
  9. Residents of a small Chinese village develop bizarre mutations as a result of pollution.
  10. Best friends are subjected to body cavity searches in a South African prison.
Like this, but bloodier and with ferrets.

Cheryl’s crazy dreams: 2, 4, 6, 7, 9

I'm glad 8 is a film out in the world. :)

I guessed correctly for most of them.
But I thought 3 would be a dream.
I kind of wish 8 was a dream, too.

#3 was my friend Sally's really amazing documentary about her dad. I would like to have more tap dancing dreams. Take note, subconscious.
