New Shorts #2: FUCKED UP LOVE

This event has ended.

12:30 Sat 5 Jan 2013

Curzon Soho

This popular selection of short films tells it like it is; LSFF had complaints following last year’s screening of this regular selection, for the films being too hard hitting, tackling break ups, hateful lovers, one night stands and unbridled lust. So, you have been warned! Watch out for Daniel Kaluuya in BEGINNING and Nichola Burley in R.

Total: 107 mins
