Short film package: Rebels With A Cause

Strong characters with bold and unflinchingly brazen attitudes take centre stage in this programme. Featuring Mika Gustafson’s Mephobia, which blurs the lines between fiction and non-fiction with her hard-hitting short following a group of young women causing havoc in a Swedish neighbourhood, while Brúsi Ólason’s Viktoría dramatises a farmer’s battle to keep her dairy farm afloat after her only colleague leaves her stranded, and the brilliant experimental dance film Juck, pushes boundaries in female representation. Filmmaking that packs a punch – unapologetically so.
