STAND UP
6 min 50 s | Director: Joseph Pierce | 2008 | England

Told through a single stand-up comedy routine, John J Jones performs to an unforgiving audience. As he loses their interest, his body rebels against him, and the truth behind the one-liners leaks through the cracks. This is car-crash comedy at its most compulsive.

The naturalist lives in the city. Whenever he can, he jumps into his car and drives out into the country to relax amid the fields and hills, to play his flute and perhaps…

INUKSHUK
8 min 45 s | Director: Camillelvis Théry | 2008 Country: France
