Two Paper Nightingales



What makes us all different is less important than what makes us all the same.
In this Student Academy Award short film, experience a breathtaking fairytale retold in three distinct voices— from Japan, India, and France! When a fair and lovely princess, living in a kingdom of secrets and mistrust, learns that her country’s so called “enemies” from a foreign state are not so different from herself, she will have to make a bold choice in order to reunite with her most beloved sister. Both whimsical and deeply emotional, this award-winning short has screened at the Director’s Guild of America and at a number of prestigious festivals, including international festivals in Tokyo, Japan and Jaipur, India. From the hearts of passionate, emerging filmmakers, “Two Paper Nightingales” is truly an elevated and radiant adventure.
