Shorts (Programme One)

Director: Assorted Directors

80 min.

Cutting-edge digital techniques intertwine with narratives drawing on radically divergent sources in this eclectic group of short films. ‘Overtime’ is an emotive ode to Jim Henson’s creative genius by French students Oury Atlan, Thibault Berland and Damien Ferrie, whilst ‘Winner Take Steve’ is a short commentary on the competitive spirit of Middle America by Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess. Serious critical insights on the roots of terrorism and perceptions of cultural outsiders can be found in ‘Flesh’ and ’11:59′. English director Adam Smith’s hilariously entertaining What Goes Up (Must Come Down) is premiered. The programme’s remaining pieces include some of the most visually ground-breaking, hilarious and poignant recent work in short film, video and animation.
