Check out today’s featured micro-short and MicroMania Film Fest 2020 Official Submission ‘O Rage!’ from France.
Director: Florent Sabatier | (2:20) drama / narrative
Diego is reading his last song’s lyrics to friends when policemen intervene violently…
Lyrical, reminiscent of the Baz Luhrman style that infuses performance within performance, O’Rage depicts a slice of life afternoon in which a poet/lyricist recites his latest work to friends as they walk through the city, the plot of which mirrors reality as they are stopped and assaulted by police. Director Florent Sabatier shows a flair for urban landscapes and illustrating the power of words in today’s volatile climate. – Alycia Ripley
