THE 5TH DIMENSION
Gary Nurse | Experimental | 15:00 minutes
It's 2050 and Sue, a widow bored with life, finds herself trapped within the realms of the mundane. Repetition takes precedence and a chronic desperation for change plagues her psyche. With a tyrant for a boss, a dead husband and two strange work colleagues riddled with secrets, Sue uses the power of imagination to exit reality through a portal inside her office's bathroom mirror, thus entering the realms of fantasy where anything is possible.
Cyriel Guds | Fiction | 9:48 minutes
A sensitive young boy learns to survive in a macho culture where you get laughed and bullied when you cry.
20 years later when he is 26 he isn't that sensitive anymore and has changed into a true 'Alpha Man' dominating other men and treating women like a foot sweep. His environment has turned him into a monster, or does he thank this to himself?
In our OPEN MIC (a spot dedicated to our community), we will premiere the trailer for the low-budget feature film THE BALKAN CONNECTION and meet the team behind it.
