Back to Earth
| Thomas Wilson, Director | 14 min. | Australia, 2015.
The sun is setting. A young man, Lou, is sitting next to a re-opened grave, hurriedly preparing an assortment of objects; a mortar and pestle, salts, flowers and a watch, taking cue from a leather-bound book full of notes and hand-drawn diagrams. He places the items on and around a recently deceased corpse that he has pulled out of the grave.

A Boy’s Life | Howard McCain, Director | 7 min. | USA, 2014.
A Boy's Life is a short narrative told only through visuals. It takes what initially appears to be a portrait of a troubled youth and twists to reveal a world gone awry.

The Crop | Will Halas, Director | 15 min. | USA, 2014.

He gets out, grabs his bag, and walks around to the passenger side. Bleeding from a wound in abdomen, he opens the door, grabs a gun from the glove box, and for the first time, we see a second man - a very dead man - in the passenger seat.
