INSPIRED BY: Films with a Lovecraftian Flavor
The Hungry Corpse | Gergely Wootsch, Director | United Kingdom | 10 min. | 2013
A short tale set in London's bustling, yet desolate Trafalgar Square about an ancient, rather hungry Corpse and... a Pigeon. Voiced by Bill Nighy ('Love Actually', 'Pirates of the Caribbean') and Stephen Mangan ('Green Wing') the film is a tale of companionship but also, a textural imprint of a dark, monochrome London from the perspective of a still, solitary protagonist. Produced as part of the first year of the Collabor8te short film funding scheme, The Hungry Corpse is a result of a fond collaboration between scriptwriter James Pout and Royal College of Art alumni animator Gergely Wootsch.
The Winter | Teresa Sutherland, Director | USA | 14 min. | 2012 1872, a year after watching her husband dragged screaming into the darkness, a solitary woman works to survive in the frigid wind of frontier Kansas. She spends the lonely days preparing for her nights. She makes candles, gathers wood, watches the never-ending horizon to ensure she is inside before the sun disappears behind the Earth. Every night she arms herself with her rifle. Every night she surrounds herself with light. Every night she fights off sleep as she waits for the creature that took her husband, and every night it returns. It comes with a purpose. It comes for her.
Derrière les arbres (Behind the Trees) | Alexis Taillant, Nicolas Lheureux, Directors| France | 30 min. | 2012
