Opera no. 1: Parker Posey and Adrienne Shelly, as roller blading angels, try to fix up a couple. The other also: Two people, out of focus stand in a room while music and sound effects are heard on the soundtrack. The new math: A wordless short with three people fighting over a math problem in a classroom. NYC3/94: Video of three people on the streets of NY.
