Director: Oliver Valente
Narrative short / 20′ / PG 13
Cassius is a wanted man. When his pursuers—led a mysterious figure in white leather shoes—catch up with him, he is forced to talk. Cassius then goes into hiding, but for how long can he prolong his fate? This is a stylish mash-up of film noir and blaxploitation, shot through with heaps of African cool.
