Kids Green the World

Genre: Short
Director(s): Amy Grappell
5 min

My, um, sister's kids

are here from Syracuse,

and they're coming to

Open Studio Night.

My nephew Steven, in particular,

is very theatrical.

What's this?

Oh, no.

Um, I'm collecting $5

from everybody for, um...

for Midge Herkell.

They just moved her to rehab,

and they think that she might

regain movement in her left leg.

I thought we could

send her some flowers.

Boy, that is rich.

I go through

two rounds of chemo,

and all I get is

a card that sings

"Roll Out the Barrel. "

Oh, and, Michael...

Too bad about

Jason Williams, huh?

What about him?

What? They're rescinding

his scholarship.

I thought he

would have told you.

No, he didn't.

Damn it.

God damn it!

It's just aspirin, Brenda.

If it was anything fabulous,

I would be

sharing it with everyone.

Right, Mervin?

Wait! Michael!

Oh, hey, Michael.

I'm just getting myself

organized here.

This place is gonna be swarming

with parents in a few hours.

Bethanne has been

hounding me

about straightening up

all month.

- How's Dan?

- He's fine.

Listen, Stuart, what's all this

about Jason's scholarship?

Oh... That.


It shouldn't come

as a surprise.

Times are tough.

We can't allow a pupil who isn't

serious about his future

to take a spot that could go

to somebody more deserving.


What are you talking about?

He's one of the

smartest kids here.

Come on. You know that.

It's just... you know,

his home life is...

Jesus Christ.

Where do I begin with that?

Look, we can't

turn our backs on him.

I mean, he's just going through

something right now...

you know, some phase.

Show me a teenager about whom

that can't be said.

Half our kids

have divorced parents,

Stuart, you're just...

you're making a huge mistake.

Well, you're entitled to

your opinion, Michael,
