Danger Signs

ALT | International Shorts

So, if it happened that a possessed woman singled you out and told you were were about to die that would be a pretty obvious danger sign wouldn’t it? The signs aren’t always so clear in most of the films in this shorts program, but they are always present. Sometimes they are couched in the instructions you are being given, or disguised by strange behaviour, or strange people, or strange people behaving strangely. Sometimes it’s a matter of perception, and some people do seem to be more attuned to signs of danger than others. These short films explore various manifestations of danger in comedic and dramatic ways, all beautifully realized and wonderfully different.
