The Short Stack: Selections from the Venice Film Festival's "Future Reloaded" program

Posted By on Tue, Sep 24, 2013 at 12:03 PM

All 68 films from the Venice Film Festival's "Future Reloaded" program showed up online today. I cherry picked a few by directors that I liked, but they're all so short (between 1:30 and 3m) that you should dig through the entire playlist on YouTube. There is a lot of good, fun stuff in there.


Necktie Dir: Yorgos Lanthimos Runtime: 1:45 Middle school girls have an old fashion duel with pistols and seconds (reenacting Barry Lyndon?). Very charming.


24 Frames Per Century Dir: Athina Rachel Tsangari Runtime: 2:30 Two lonely projectors discuss whether someone will there to change their reel while projecting David Lean's Brief Encounter.  (This was my favorite, personally.)


(No Title) Dir: Abbas Kiarostami Runtime: 1:30 Two kids play a practical joke on an old man, who hams it up for the camera.


50:50 Dir: Hong Sang-soo Runtime: 1:30 Even sharing a cigarette comes with social politics.


My Mother Dir: Kim Ki-duk Runtime: 2m The director's mother goes out of her way to feed her son when he calls to tell her that he's coming over.


(No Title) Dir: Jazmin Lopez Runtime: 2m Incest is the best? I guess?


(No Title) Dir: Celina Murga Runtime: 2m If only all kids were this cool at the movies. Watch for the boy who picks his nose and almost eats it.


(No Title) Dir: Walter Salles Runtime: 2:30 Minutes before the new Pope is introduced, a daughter thinks about her mother.
