Grandma knows best

Oma and Bella, two elderly Jewish women who live together in Berlin, spend most of their days telling funny stories, cooking traditional Eastern European Jewish food, and reminiscing about their shared childhoods. Oma's granddaughter, Alexa, has chosen these two women as the subjects for her first feature-length documentary about heritage, identity, and really good rugelach.

When Brock Scott of the Georgia band Little Tybee discovered that world-class kinetic sculptor Tom Haney lived right down the street, he knew he wanted to collaborate. Together, they're creating a short film that combines puppetry, robotic sculptures, and Brock's music to tell a story about a wandering explorer who stumbles upon a mysterious fair in the middle of the desert. Not your average music video!
