SHORTS: ROLLING IN THE DEEP

Total program 60 min

“Throw your soul through every open door. Count your blessings to find what you look for.” These short films by talented British female directors use a variety of genres and styles to tell contemporary stories. Hailing from one of the most vibrant LGBTQ communities in the UK, Sarah Smith’s joyously campy Cardiff (UK 2022, 25 min) follows a single gay man who falls in love with his married friend’s lover. Katya Ganfeld’s edgy, aesthetically arresting Mirror Mirror (UK 2022, 15 min) explores a heartsick woman’s journey into an unknown reality. In Caitlin McLeod’s poignant One Like Him (Jordan/UK 2022, 16 min), a man seeks confrontation with a childhood friend while being forced to relive painful memories of his past. Reflecting on deeply human themes with hilarity, intimacy, and surreal thrills, these daring films captivate. —Danielle Owens
