Assassinations, family feuds, vampiric seductions and tough crooks are the order of the day in this London Short Film Festival selection of noir-tinged genre pieces.
Anchored by heavyweight performances from the likes of Jessica Brown-Findlay (Harlots), Joe Dempsie (Game of Thrones) and Louise Brealey (Sherlock), these shorts prove themselves a masterclass in plot twist – with flashes of violence, unexpected turns and some questionable characters on questionable missions. Programmed by Philip Ilson. 71’
This programme contains blood, violence, drug use and predatory behaviour.
