Description

“Round and round and up and down and round and round and dizzy, dizzy till I can’t see.” Tonal shifts abound in these shorts about life and death, love and business. For starters, welcome to the new corporate landscape of leadership in Martin Sweeney’s visionary Femto-Management: A Micromentary (US, 12 min). In Omar el Zohairy’s dry comedy Aftermath of the Inauguration of the Public Toilet at Kilometer 375 (Egypt, 18 min), a single sneeze takes on Kafkaesque proportions for one government official. In Danny Madden’s remarkably animated Confusion Through Sand (US, 13 min), a desert soldier is at war with both the enemy and the elements. Memorializing a girlfriend’s ex becomes a nightmare scenario for one modest beau in John Salcido’s raucous Tribute (US, 18 min). And a middle-aged gay couple uncover new revelations while mattress shopping in Jonathan Wysocki’s Adjust-A-Dream (US, 6 min).
