Eat my shorts 2021 – 4


EAT MY SHORTS 4 (International Short Films)

We start this last selection with a bit of Bronski Beat in the sympathetic post-apocalyptic tale The Archivists. But we’re also going to laugh our ass off with Heat, Plants, Monster and Rock & Roll and the wacky Belgian crime comedy CDD: Corpus Crisis. The pure horror of Strange Calm and Beyond The Skin provides a fitting coda to this collection of shorts.
