Short of the Week- Five Feet High & Rising

A short by Peter Sollet which was the winner of the Short Filmmaking Award at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival. If you haven’t seen Raising Victor Vargas, this was the backdrop for that movie. Its the story of a 12 yr old boy named Victor who is growing up in the Lower East Side and going through different experiences.  You may recognize Victor because he stars in the recent HBO show “How to Make it in America.” as Cameron “Cam” Calderon.  They also just picked up Season 2, which I definitely will be watching!
