Black Sun: International Short Film Competition 3
3 Nov 2020 - 30 Nov 2020
Light and darkness combine in these taut and tense tales of pressure and success. An Iranian mother makes a catastrophic error under pressure in a shopping mall; a Sámi girl exacts brutal revenge on her attacker; an unexpected event threatens to undo the job interview preparation of an anxious young man, a stolen bike in Israel is recovered not without consequences and we also find ourselves in Finland amid a family relationship which is vulgar and absurd yet utterly humane.
