Film Description: Synopsis: Based on true events, “In Transit” is the meeting of two people from diametrically opposite cultures, background, and demographics. Although they seem to be as different on the surface, they discover through this brief encounter at a bus stop, that they have more in common than they thought. A poignant, yet delightful moment, amidst the contradiction, that is LA. “In Transit” has been an “official selection” to numerous film festivals around the country including the Palm Springs ShortFest. Nominated for 5 Angelino Film Awards including Best Short Film, Best Actor (Suniil Sadarangani), Best Actress (Liliana Arriaga), Best Director (Telly Award Winner Stev Elam), and Best Representation of a New Idea. “In Transit” is scheduled to be submitted to the 85th Annual Academy Awards and made into a full-length feature film.
