Second Look: Shorts from the 2012 Fest

Posted on by

The inventiveness of shorts filmmakers never ceases to amaze us. Submissions for the 2012 Dallas international Film Festival include a breakfasting lost soul, a chicken in the city, a twist on history, and a conflicted father-son relationship. Watch them again below, and don't forget about our selection of short films from the 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 Fests.

DR. BREAKFAST

Directed by Stephen Neary
One day at breakfast, a man's soul bursts out of his eyeball. While his soul roams the earth, eating everything in sight, two wild deer bathe, clothe, and feed his catatonic body in this surreal meditation on the quirky, but rejuvenating, nature of friendship.

A MORNING STROLL

Directed by Directed by Grant Orchard
DIFF animated short grand jury winner
When a New Yorker walks past a chicken on his morning stroll, we are left to wonder which one is the real city slicker.

AARON BURR, PART 2

Directed by Dana O'Keefe
A contemporary re-imagining of the duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr explores the idea of history as a contested narrative.

DOUBLES WITH SLIGHT PEPPER

Directed by Ian Harnarine
A father’s request of the son he left behind in Trinidad reveals deep wounds in this heartfelt immigrant story.
