Ouroborus In a suburban town, a purple liquid is starting to trap everyone who is settling into their daily routine.

Youth Will Not Sleep It is one of those nights when everything can change. When you don’t know anymore if time goes forward or backward like a broken record.

(Dir. by Perrine Lamy-Quique, 2021, France, 29 mins.)

A Dutiful Spouse Be polite and thoughtful with whomever you quarantine. (Dir. by Michael Mulcahy, 2021, USA, 5 mins.)
