A NIGHT OF EXPLOSIVE SHORT FILMS
Red Hot Shorts teams up with Amnesty International to present a night of explosive short films on the reality of conflict and armed violence. Through award-winning short films, we are taken to places that have been affected by the global arms trade. In one musically charged film, we see the effects of violence in Rio’s favelas through the eyes of the hugely popular rapper, MC Smith.
We also shine a light on some of the issues facing asylum seekers – through the creative use of animation, documentary and short fiction.
This showcase will remind us of the forces that restrict basic freedoms and tell the stories of inspirational individuals.
