Saturday Shorts at Out Twin Cities Film Festival hosted by Theatres at Mall of America
Six short films on one bill.
'A Last Farewell' - directed by Casper Andreas (Sweden) RT: 12 min.
A LAST FAREWELL is both a calm and an upsetting portrait of an ageing author's
sorrow over the death of his long-term partner. Haunted by visions of his late
husband, and in conflict with his daughter who is trying to renew the ties between
them, he must tackle the impossible task of moving on and finding peace in the wake
of a devastating loss.
'Dinner at 40' - directed by Carl Byrd (USA) RT: 18 min.
Loosely based on the director's own 41st birthday party, Dinner at 40 was a labor of love that Carl Byrd and screenwriter Peter Macklin collaborated on. The story touches on the feelings of a gay man turning 40: the panic, the doubt, and the supposed loss of his youth as he spends a 'quiet' evening at a restaurant with a small group of his closest friends. Unexpected dinner guests, crazy friends, a hot ex, cocktails and a drag queen.
'Human Warmth' - directed by Christophe Predari (Belgium) RT: 11 min. - subtitles
Antoine loves being close to Bruno. He loves his warmth. He needs it. But Bruno's need for Antoine fades, leaving Antoine's body still.
'The Best Friend' (O Melhor Amigo) - directed by Allan Deberton (Brazil) RT: 17 min. - subtitles
Saturday, first day of vacation. Lucas and Felipe decide to go to the beach.
