  1. […] The films in “The Tablet Shorts, Out” are “Treat,” “The Heart’s the Matter,” and “Kitchen Not!”. The stories, ideas, and film styles are about as different as three short films can be. So these films can really be interesting to a very broad audience. It’s not like only people in the brain injury community or only people in the disability community would enjoy them. Together, they touch on humor, horror, gore, health, surgery, stigma, poverty, race, disability, food, secrets, obsessions, death and advocacy. What a line up!
