24-01-21 NEW SHORTS: Pulp Fictions (at Catford Mews)

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.
