Death and Life of Desmond Wolfe Short Film

Why Watch? The concept of flipping through brief moments in a person’s life to create a short film is tried and true, which is what makes this outstanding work from Brett Williams and Hayden Phipps that much more impressive. For one, it’s got a beautifully-shot stunt at its core. For two, it subverts that common flash-by-flash exploration of a person’s existence by introducing us to a man who is not at all what he seems.

Top-flight in every department, it’s a stirring little shock of a movie.

We’re partnering again this year with Filminute, and we’ll be featuring a new short film every day this week (that you can go vote for) from the festival which highlights one-minute-long movies and runs through September 30th.

What Will It Cost? One minute.
