Here's another preview from one of the films featured in this weekend's Bronx International Film Festival at Lehman College, which started last night and continues tonight and tomorrow evening. Visit www.bronxstage.com for tickets and information.

This clip, from “A Joke,” by Andy Brown, is based on short story by Anton Chekov. It'll screen tonight. Here's a little synopsis from the Festival's website:

“Bryce and Nadia have been dating for about 3 months when Bryce decides to bring her to his favorite sledding hill. After a little persuasion, Nadia agrees to ride with him down the steepest slope on the hill. As they are barreling down the hill, Bryce leans in and whispers 'I Love You' into Nadia's ear. When they reach the bottom of the slope, Nadia is not sure if she heard Bryce's whisper or not. And Bryce is not giving her any clues. They continue to go sledding together for the rest of the winter. Each time they descend the slope Bryce chooses the most treacherous moment to lean in and whisper into Nadia's ear. Come springtime, they must part ways because Bryce is leaving to study abroad. Years later Bryce returns to sledding hill and reveals why he had only spoken those words to her while speeding down the slope.”
