A short film about friendship and adolescence, Ethan and Eli tells the story of two 17 year old boys who break their town's curfew the night before one of them deploys to Afghanistan. As they wander around their small Georgian town in search of a place to hang out, the best friends soon find themselves at odds between each other and the law.
The film was written and directed by Katrina Albright, basing the story on the experiences of her little brother. In fact, the short was filmed in the Georgia town where she and her brother grew up and features a cast of Georgia natives. Her film was an official selection at numerous film festivals last year, including Hollyshorts, Skyline Indie and Oregon Independent Film Festival. Ethan and Eli has also won second place in Slamdance's Screenplay Competition in 2012 as well as earned Honorable Mention for Best Short at Indie Grits Film Festival in 2014. You can see an interview given by Albright at last year's Indie Grits below.
You can now watch Ethan and Eli on Film Festival Collective presented by XFINITY.
