Smith’s Lioness is about a mother who fiercely protects her daughter. La Bi-Vencia, a documentary short by Mariana Gongora-Reyes and Analaura Cardenas, is about a border town abandoned after 9/11. Mommyland, an animated short by Aijian Chen, is set in an amusement park where an expectant mother experiences the joys and fears of pregnancy. — Doug Pullen
