FUTURE SHORTS ONE: AUGUST PROGRAMME
The official Future Shorts ONE programme is curated by Future Shorts in London each month and screened in multiple locations around the world.

THE CHASE – I LIKE U
Dir. l’Ogre / 2011 / France
A journey through lots of faces for The Chase.

RADIOSTAN
Dir. Tomás Sheridan / 2010 / Russia
On the long road from Kyrgyzstan to Moscow, people speak what’s on their mind, from the intrusion of immigrants to living in a yurt. Like changing frequencies on the radio, we roam the terrain, gaining an insight into the thoughts of people rarely portrayed in the media.

A FAMILY PORTRAIT
Dir. Joseph Pierce / 2009 / UK
A family portrait goes horribly wrong as jealousy and suspicion bubble to the surface under the photographer’s relentless gaze.

BABY
Dir. Daniel Mulloy / 2010 / UK
A young woman intervenes when she witnesses men mugging a girl. Now they won’t leave her alone.

LA DAME AU CHIEN
Dir. Damien Manivel / 2010 / France
On a hot summer afternoon, a teenager finds a stray dog in a local park. He decides to take the dog back to its owner. An overweight black woman, half drunk, opens the door and asks him in by way of thanks. They sit down in the living room. 

STUCK IN A GROOVE
Dir. Clemens Kogler / 2010 / Austria
What do Madonna, Massive Attack and Angela Merkel have in common?

THE LOOSE TOOTH
Dir. Klaus Kjeldsen / 1994 / Denmark
There is hardly anyone else who knows more about tooth exfoliation than children. Once the baby teeth have developed, they are already about to fall out. Children discuss competently the issue of permanent teeth.
