The monthly screening series for local and independent artists is highlighted by three strong short animations. Kristen Lauth Shaeffer’s “349” edits together work by 349 artists asked to depict themselves and a person with whom they have a significant relationship; it plays like a single poignant pas de deux. Andrew Halasz’s “Emmett: A Tomato’s Life” is the dark-humored biography of an anthropomorphized fruit in an urban backyard. And Paul Hluchan’s “Snow Story” is an oddly transcendent fable positing an unlikely Creator. The June 14 Film Kitchen, curated by Matthew R. Day, also includes two live-action shorts by Kevin Hejna. “Zombie Woman” is a superhero origin story, first in a planned series. And “God Is Laughing” is a drama set in “the 10th year of the American Civil War.”
