Two films by five De Anza College students will be shown at Cinequest Film Festival 16 in the Students’ Shorts Program on March 2 at 8 p.m. and March 5 at 9 a.m.

The two films are "Black Candle" by Rekha Radhakrishnan and Paul Gill, and "Pasta Point of No Return" by Neil Baker, Jackie Marr and Chetan Patil.

The films will be shown at Camera 12 Cinemas in downtown San Jose.

"Black Candle" is about a Muslim woman who unburdens herself from the shackles of religious doctrine and must now make her own way in the world.

"Pasta Point of No Return" is about a hungry student lured into a nest of vicious meatballs by his lunch, and taken out by the godfather of Italian entrees. The film was shot on the De Anza campus. For more information visit www.cinequest.org.
