About this submission

There are so many different types of interactions. As humans, we constantly interact with each other. Sometimes those interactions are positive, sometimes they are negative. One interaction I have never experienced is that of seeing a professor or teacher outside of class. Ever since I was young, I have wanted to run into a teacher at the grocery store or the movie theater. But, it has never happened to me. So, I created a silent short film about a struggling student who encounters his least favorite teacher in the park, with a classic Western film spin on it.
