HAPPY ENDINGS

Offering us closure and a cheerful send off, the selection of short films for this program mark the end of innocence, the end to routine, an end to incompetence, and the end of the festival. Join us for closing night and be sure to stick around after the credits. That’s all folks.

 

Going Nowhere – Dir: Rene Frelle Petersen – NARRATIVE – 00:19:59 – DENMARK

Jannik, a 39 year old former marathon runner is bound to a wheelchair. Jannik has planned a way out of his misery. All he has to do now is give his brother, Morten, a final good bye. Even though his brother Morten is characteristically irresponsible and lazy, he surprises Jannik by making an effort to support him, in his own peculiar way. Their bond as brothers reemerges as they reflect upon their childhood memories.

 

Stakeout – Dir: Kit Pongetti – NARRATIVE - 0:15:48 – USA

Within the confines of 1986 suburbia, two high-school best friends ironically stake out parties from the comfort of their '83 Honda Accord until one night, when one of the girls goes inside. Inspired by the coming-of-age films by John Hughes, STAKEOUT takes a fresh and specific look at the beauty of friendship, and the stinging pain of inevitable change.

 

IL FISCHIETTO – Dir: Lamberto Sanfelice – NARRATIVE - 0:15:00 – ITALY

The Whistle tells the story of Giulia, a ten-year-old girl coping with the loss of her parents. Giulia suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and has difficulty accepting the harsh reality she has to face. She detaches herself from her surroundings and does not seem to be able to communicate with the people around her. Giulia's only friend is her dog, who we only later find out is a mental projection: the dog,named Elliott, was also in the car with her parents at the moment of the fatal accident.


Ley Orgánica – Dir: Juan Fermin – NARRATIVE - 0:11:00 – VENEZUELA

That so-called 1/92 Law is being used as a pretext by an incompetent policeman to mistreat two women that arrived to the police station to press charges and report a rape. But the officer is more interested in gambling in a horse competition than doing his job.


Juan & La Borrega – Dir: J. Xavier Velasco – NARRATIVE - 0:10:00 – MEXICO

Juan, who works in a uniform store, has taken refuge in a routine life without ambition. Until one day, "La Borrega" came along…

 

Unremembered – Dir: Kelly Parslow – NARRATIVE - 0:14:59 – UNITED KINGDOM

A vicar tries to track down the identity of the person who lay buried under a nondescript gravestone in his London churchyard. His curiosity grows into obsession to unearth the mystery.
