Filmmakers: Robertino Zambrano and Melissa Johnson
Running Time: 9 minutes
Melissa Johnson hit 6’4’’ tall in 8th grade. Although this made her an instant basketball star, Love in the Time of March Madness follows her hilarious and awkward misadventures in romance as she dates shorter men and gets cheered or jeered wherever she goes. Blazing with honesty and dark humor, this animated “tall short” is a true story about embracing difference that is certain to disarm and delight.
