Flatpack Festival
Film for all the senses

Short Film Competition: Flesh & Bone

Saturday 11th May, 2024

The Mockingbird Cinema - Screen 2 | 17:45 - 19:15

There’s no two ways about it: having a body is weird, and no one knows that more than the characters in this programme.

Whether it’s a confrontation with your own love handles (Pistoleras), a tense family trip to get hair plugs put in (Beautiful Men), or an argument about how naked you ought to be in a Sauna (Kuk), this programme confronts just how much we’re affected by these bodies we drive around in.
