NEW SHORTS: Pulp Fictions
Monday, 18 January 2021
AFTERTASTE, dir. Chloe Wicks
Assassinations, family feuds, vampiric seductions and tough crooks are the order of the day in this selection of noir-tinged genre pieces.
Anchored by heavyweight performances from the likes of Jessica Brown-Findlay (Harlots), Joe Dempsie (Game of Thrones) and Louise Brealey (Sherlock), these shorts prove themselves a masterclass in plot twist - with flashes of violence, unexpected turns and some questionable characters on questionable missions.
Programmed by Philip Ilson. 71'
This programme contains blood, violence, drug use and predatory behaviour.
Indianna Bell, Josiah Allen
Sound recordist Andrew operates from the fringes of film sets, unseen and often forgotten. When Andrew tunes into a young actress having an affair with a film director, he uses the recording to blackmail her into submitting to his perverted desires.
After being disturbed by a phone-call from a man from her past, an actress is provoked to act irrationally. To make matters more complex, the play that she stars in is also about a tumultuous relationship between a man and a woman. Here, the lines between art and reality are mesmerisingly blurred.
