Friends of mine alerted me to Nicole Dorsey's short film "Harold."

It's a finalist in the SHAPE: AT&T Tech and Entertainment Expo contest.

The film follows the story of Harold, an anthropomorphic pine tree, as he tries to make his way to Oregon. It seems that the harsh city streets of Los Angeles have become uninhabitable for him and he hears that there is a protected tree territory up north. Harold is a likeable drifter and the audience cheers him on as his story unfolds.

Over the years on C&L, I've tried to provide a platform to promote some old and new voices, whether they be musical, political, book or film and I will continue to do so.

I hope you enjoy.
