Women’s Shorts

A superb collection of short films of particular appeal to women. some very funny and some no joke at all. A Woman Reported is a brilliantly shot film of a woman escaping a violent attack, while for Alice escape from her violent partner is sad and painful (Dani and Alice). In the award-winning Hoi Maya! a chance encounter between two older women at the hairdressers re-opens possibilities long forgotten. We are delighted to show a repeat screening of Olive, who finds that her seductive friend is not so unconventional after all. A down-trodden housewife finds life looks up when she reconsiders her Moustache. Carisma – not – is a brilliant black comedy about a crisis, while in Wedding Daydream a bridegroom fantasising about the women he’ll have to give up gets a rude awakening.
