Bold

As the fire can draw you close to its untamed flame, the characters in this short film program will allure you with their fiery spirits. These films portray the concept of being bold in different ways and show that attitude and being kick ass varies in expression. From entering a bar wearing a Wonder Woman costume and owning it to collectively creating resilience - this is bold.

The stories in this category are very different but they are united by the need for human contact.
