Shorts #5: Love Is Strange

An upbeat selection of live action short films showing just how strange love can be. Ride along for the highs and lows in each story – from big blow out weddings to starting a new family. One thing is clear; there is more than one way to love.

To Wendy Who Kicked Me When I Said I Love You

Annie Waits

Marnie Paxton-Harris, UK, 2017, 9mins

We’ve all waited for ‘the one’. The one who catches our eye, the one who keeps our interest, the one who won’t expect us to trudge down that conventional path. Annie Waits tells the story of lust and disappointment, as a twenty-something waits for her adult life to begin.

Pee. Wait. Panic. Steph is in a happy, long-term relationship, but now she might be pregnant she has no idea what she wants.

The Full Story

Daisy Jacobs, UK, 2017, 8mins

A loving, close-knit family falls apart as we hurtle through the Seventies into the divorce boom of the Eighties. Many years later, when the family home is sold, hindsight and fragments of childhood memory combine to reveal the full story.

Close Ties

Zofia Kowalewska, Poland, 2016, 18mins

Barbara and Zdzislaw are soon to celebrate their forty-fifth anniversary. It would have been quite the occasion if not for the fact that Zdzislaw spent eight of those years living with another woman.

Ojiu Sex

When a heart-broken man tries to contact his deceased girlfriend, he discovers she wants more than just a chat.
