GAZE SHORTS: WISE BOYS / FLAWED MEN

From Monday September 6th, in line with government guidelines, all patrons must show proof of vaccination upon entering the cinema screen.

Plato said the measure of a man is what he does with power, and in this programme of excellently crafted shorts, power can be playful, poetic and problematic.
