Sue Mroz and Carolina Posse Take 'The Scary Ham' to Festivals Around the Country
Cinema and Television Arts Associate Professor Sue Mroz and Assistant Professor Carolina Posse wrote and directed, and produced (respectively) the short film The Scary Ham. The film is about two middle-aged sisters sorting through 50 years' worth of family memorabilia as they reconnect and contend with their late father's beloved ham that loomed in his basement for decades.
Mroz and Posse were inspired after hearing Ellen Klages tell her family story while hosting the Nebula Awards in 2014 and decided to adapt the tale into a film.
