Jennifer Reeder – And I Will Rise If Only To Hold You Down (United States 2012, 24:30 mins.)

Simultaneously theatrical and dry, this film tells a brief story about a family. Although it, at first, appears to abide by the rules it also has a dark, absurdist layer that we hardly ever see in Hollywood films.
