Wild Horses (2017) won the Nijmegen Youth Award last april at our festival. We spoke on the phone with Rory Alexander Stewart, the director of Wild Horses (2017), about his experience at Go Short International Short Film Festival, what sparked him to make Wild Horses (2017), horses and his admiration for Emma Curtis, who played the lead role in Wild Horses (2017).
What would you do if you were literally losing your father day by day, when he literally becomes less and less of himself and gets more and more out of control? When is the time to literally let go of your father? And when exactly is it too late? Those are the questions posed in this week’s Short Shot, the post-apocalyptic short film Flesh and Blood (2016).
This short film is not suited for children, adults will probably have a laugh or two. The Short Shot this week is How To Have A Romantic Date and it is really short, so don’t tell me you’re too busy to watch it.
In an old western tavern, the fate of a town is about to change when an outsider arrives and doesn’t have the money to pay for a glass of water. This week’s short shot is focused on the short Western Animation A Long Way From Home (2018), a short animation that blends together influences from both Akira Kurosawa and Sergio Leone.
Few films have aged as well as the nearly 90 year old film Un Chien Andalou (1929) directed by Luis Buñuel. Patrik Eklund, who was one of our main guests last edition at our festival, chose this film among other of his favorite films to be screened as part of his carte-blanche program. This week this surrealistic art film is our focus in this Short Shot blogpost.
