Short Film: ‘Late’ Offers a Twisting Heartbreak in One Minute

Late Short Film

Why Watch? This entry from Chong Yuen Ping is direct but effective. A husband comes home to his wife already in the middle of having supper. Plaintive, he promises to her cold shoulder that he’ll change, but there’s something wrong that can’t be fixed.

Acted with just the right notes of remorse and solitude, it’s a gut punch that aims slightly higher.

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.
