These seven student shorts-both documentary and narrative-may well represent the next generation of up-and-coming filmmakers. “The Battle of the Jazz Guitarist” is a hilarious and offbeat profile of the director’s smooth jazz-loving father, and in “Stepsister,” a woman goes to great lengths to torment her stepbrother’s fiancée. “A World for Raul” finds two boys in a dangerous power struggle in Mexico; and the bittersweet “When the Song Dies” captures some of the last members in line in a long tradition of song and superstition in Scotland.
