PRINCE CHARLES DISCOVERY 1
11.00 AM 26 AUGUST
UK shorts take us from the strange to the beautiful. Watch strange nuns transform in Madder Isle, and a woman become stranger in Wrong Number. Home is not necessarily where the heart is, in The Blue Door starring Gemma Whelan, and Salt, starring Alice Lowe. And time is not on the side of some unfortunate souls in Be Uncertain and There are No Dividends. In international shorts, we go from the New Zealand elements in Fire in Cardboard City, to unhappy homes in Lebanon in Reprisal, to dangerous Irish streets in Catcalls, to a serial-killer-in-training in Marta.
