“As We Are,” a short film produced by longtime resident of El Medio Bluffs Robin Ungar, won the Audience Award at the 29th annual Woods Hole Film Festival, which presented a virtual showcase in 2020 due to the pandemic. The film shared the story of a group of musicians on the autism spectrum who are preparing for a benefit concert with local professionals in Annapolis, Maryland.
“We are elated,” Ungar wrote of the win. “So the film has now been launched and hopefully we will have a two-year festival run in which it can be seen. The message is one of hope and joy and resilience. When words fail, try music. It is the common language for so many humans.”
