After Thought Short Film

Why Watch? Let’s say you get a notice in the mail this afternoon requesting payment from a funeral home whose recently hosted a somber event with your name on the casket. Let’s also say that when you try to clear it up with them, things get a little Kafkaesque.

That’s a surface-level start to this quiet short film from Val Keller that explores, at its root, a standard sci-fi trope with the promise of something more steely in its angle. Shot with a quirky unease that’s like a sedated Brazil, it’s a slick, complete package that also feels like the first chapter in an ongoing series. A fun diversion that tilts its head at an existential question.

What Will It Cost? About 7 minutes.
