A young woman and her trusty companion wait for the bus at a late night diner in this delightfully simple short directed by Lia Wang. Shot and produced by Sam Zhang, “Carnival” introduces us to a world both familiar and strange as it explores the moments in life that can’t always be shared or explained to others.
