LA Noir    (10min)

In breakout performances, Cris Judd and Staci Flood star in a
suspenseful tale about a writer/working stiff who chases after a
mysterious woman haunting him throughout the day, only to find that he’
s the one being stalked.  A unique, poetic and thought-provoking short
film, LA Noir blends Bukowski inspired poetry, the Twilight Zone, Film
Noir and French New Wave to deliver a hybrid writer Ricardo Acuna likes
to call “existential horror.”

Nevermore    (1hour : 3min)

In his younger days Helge Block used to be a skillful and respected
fisherman, but nowadays he hardly brings any fish back home. The
people in the village have turned their backs on him and his beloved son
Jonas. But nonetheless they lead a happy life in the small fishing hut by
the sea. But one stormy night Helge sets out to fulfill an old mysterious
dream: To bring back “the silver of heavens” – a large catch for his
starving son – and never returns. Thereupon little Jonas Block has to
undergo the painful hardships of poverty, puritan austerity and loss.
Slowly the little boy loses his smile and starts to embitter. But then a little
miracle happens – at the magical place where heavens and sea become
one...
