A Lover’s Discourse: International Short Film Competition 2
Miniature explorations of the many facets of love ranging from the potent dynamic between a Taiwanese woman and her stepson; the quiet intensity of two Nigerian men in Georgia; the risqué conversations in a Swiss kitchen; the peaks, troughs and wide-eyed candour of an early morning drink and drug session; the complexities of seeking and finding a domestic lodger; and the sharing of secrets between an Italian shepherd and his gauche companion.
