Film School Shorts is made possible by a grant from Maurice Kanbar, celebrating the vitality and power of the moving image, and by the members of KQED. Film School Shorts is a production of KQED.

In Brooklyn, a makeshift memorial for a young man’s friend has been set up on a street corner. He walks up and takes a closer look. Alongside his best friend, a picture shows them on horseback. They’re smiling.

Taco is the young man’s name and he has a funeral to go to. Problem is, he doesn’t want to. Guilted by his elders to attend and chided by his peers to take revenge, Taco only wants to do one thing: take his horse Chance out for a ride. But against the concrete and graffiti and haze of grief, is this a good idea?

A short film by Christina Choe. Made at Columbia University School of the Arts.
