Higher Grounds

The award-winning short film Higher Grounds has the earth welcoming our first alien contact. The aliens have announced their presence by flooding the earth's atmosphere with oxygen. The powers-that-be take this as a gift, since we are choking ourselves with carbon dioxide. But is that the aliens' intention? The ambassadors from the cosmos are two guys who both suffer from a lack of self-esteem. They can't even properly parallel park. One falls for an earthling, and the other is in a desperate search for a bathroom. Higher Grounds is from Joe Kramer, who plays the alien Ralff, and Christian Sarkis Graham, who plays the convenience store clerk. (Thanks, Joe Kramer!)
