Our short film, ‘The Crack,’ is competing in the Experimental Short Film Category at the 11th Annual Other Venice Film Festival on Saturday, October 11th at 1pm. Tickets are only $10 and can be purchased here (keep scrolling we’re more than half way down the page). Tickets are for our film plus the other seven experimental short films in competition. Come out and support independent film!
Here’s a little description of our contribution to the festivities:
“The Crack” delivers beautifully crafted images that compel cultural, social, and spiritual reflection all while delivering unexpectedly delightful and shameless moments of physical comedy. This short film explores the pivotal shift in the lives of Helen and Roger, two extremely ordinary citizens, who have taken a day to themselves at the beach. Content to soak in the sun and natural beauty, the ocean delivers an unexpected invitation to a world and life beyond the edge of their known reality.
Like a fault-line splitting under the immense pressure of shifting geological plates, ‘The Crack’ will shatter your artistic sense of reason and tickle your good, whimsical taste. A rift in time? A portal through space? What hides amongst the froth of the waves striking hard on sea side rocks?
