THE THIEVES OF ALMIRA
Short Film (Drama)
A film by Andrew Lee (USA)
Quincy is up to bat in the game that her and her two friends created to spark excitement in a dull suburb: sneak into a house and steal an object chosen at random. Upon entering the home, she is caught by the old, Korean homeowner who mistakes Quincy for her own granddaughter. Quincy takes complete advantage of this in order to "win" the game while providing much needed company to a lonely grandmother.
An Atlanta filmmaker with roots in NY/NJ, Andrew draws most of his palette from animated films. His biggest inspirations are legendary directors such as Hayao Miyazaki, Mamoru Hosoda, and Satoshi Kon. He hopes to one day find the perfect balance in between an animated film and a live-action one, in order to blend the two mediums together.
