One of the best short films I've seen this year
The U.S. is truly a nation of immigrants, and nowhere is this more apparent than New York City, where Salam is a Lyft driver with a complicated family situation. With the perfect balance of humor and humanity, Claire Fowler's Salam turns conventions on its head and opens our eyes in the most unexpected ways. As secrets are slowly revealed we find ourselves questioning assumptions at every turn. This powerful and poignant film touches on everything from discrimination to bullying to politics. Stellar production values help make Salam one of the best short films I've seen this year. You will not walk away unaffected.
