Watch: ‘Duck Children’ is Like Watching David Lynch Direct a School Play


Why Watch? With the announcement of the second wave of Fantastic Fest movies, it seems fitting to watch something bizarre. Our very own Brian Kelley hipped me to this experimental short from Sam Walker where a chorus line of children dressed in duck costumes morphs into something much, much more sinister.

What will it cost you? Only 7 minutes.

Skip work. Watch more short films.
