As part of our mission, the CCCM supports the new filmmakers showcase their projects. This time we invite Manny Montanez with his short film Awkward Silence, a film about love and language barriers. Synopsis Awkward Silence is a short film that hopes to tell an unconventional love story about the tests couples must take, in order to see if their relationship is worth fighting for. The couple in our story will not only face cultural differences, but a language barrier that becomes an obstacle in expressing their love for each other. Aaron and Eva have been dating for almost a year and believe their relationship is headed on the right track. It isn't until a night out, that a misunderstanding comes between their love. Now they must reevaluate their relationship, while reliving the first time they met and the night in question. Can love speak in more than one language?
