A dried flower delivery girl. A turntable expert. An immigrant.

These are among the stars of the films that are included in Lunafest 2019.

Girls on the Run Wood River will present Lunafest 2019, an evening of short films by, for and about women at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3, at the Argyros Performing Arts Center in Ketchum.

The films range from 3 to 17 minutes. They include animation and fictional drama. And they cover such topics as women’s health, motherhood, body image, aging, cultural diversity and breaking barriers.

  • “Flip the Record,” for instance, is a coming-of-age story set to hip-hop music that chronicles a Filipino-American teen’s path to discovering her identity through her turntablism.
  • “The Final Show,” focuses on a woman who has lived a long life full of love and loss and now must decide, based on all she has learned, who to take with her to eternity.
  • “My Immigrant Story” chronicles San Francisco-based documentary filmmaker Yuriko Gamo Romer’s path to American citizenship.
  • “War Paint” revolves around a young black girl in South Los Angeles who experiences a series of events that intersect racism and sexism.
  • “Drummer Girl” showcases a woman’s life changed in the blink of an eye.
  • “Are We Good Parents?” showcases parents examining their preconceived notions and their openness as parents when their 14-year-old daughter says she’s going to her first dance.
  • “Today, Tomorrow, Yesterday” is an animated film depicting how a young woman makes peace with herself after finding her old diaries.
  • “Ur Dead to Me” features the story of a dried-flower delivery girl who gets a glimpse into the cycles of love and loss.
