Why Watch? We’ve been at Cannes since Wednesday, we’ll be there through next week, and we’ll continue to highlight short films that have played near the Mediterranean shore through then.
In 2009, this short from Mark Albiston and Louis Sutherland won a Special Distinction, and it’s easy to see why. With a subtle somberness that lets the danger of being 8 years old ring true, this story of a young boy who has to stand up to his bullies is fierce and also beautifully shot.
What Will It Cost? About 15 minutes.
