Fowler, Claire
Salam (Hana Chamoun) is a Lyft driver from a tight knit family. A portion of her family lives in Syria. When her New York based family gets word of a bombing in Syria, it’s a waiting game to know if their loved ones are ok. To rest her nerves, Salam decides to go to work. She picks up Audrey (Leslie Bibb), who seems to be in distress herself. The exchange that follows is a layered interaction of surface expectations versus what’s really underneath the surface of our daily lives. Nominated for Best Narrative Short at the Tribeca Film Festival and at the London Film Festival.
