S02E01 Episode 1 13/02/2011 BBC HD presents a selection of short films from emerging filmmaking talents, including the Bafta-nominated surreal fantasy Turning, Russell Tovey and Sean Pertwee in the war-time drama In Passing, plus five further tales of the dark, dangerous and bizarre. Presented in partnership with BBC Film Network. Turning (dir. Karni and Saul) BAFTA-nomimated for Best Short Film in 2011, Turning tells the story of Robert, who on his sixth birthday receives three beautiful broken old birds in his mother's sitting room. Through his eyes, we visit the memory of this afternoon, visualized with the free spirited imagination of childhood, naive yet wonderfully dark. In Passing (dir. Chris Croucher ) Russell Tovey and Sean Pertwee feature in a wartime drama which explores a mother's love for her son. Little Dinosaurs (dir. Dana Dorian) Original animation which uses a tale of two dinosaurs to reflect on issues around how we relate to each other. Perfect to Begin (dir. Richard Lawson) Hard hitting drama which questions our preconceptions about what we see, as a thoroughly modern family sets out on a seaside holiday in a "borrowed" campervan. Sexy Pig (dir. Robert Ford) Comedy which combines a telephone call, a break-in, and cooking as never seen before. Mud Boy (dir. Nic Penrake) Creative and cinematic drama which explores the imagination of a young girl who needs to believe in an alternative reality. Ant & Len (dir. Duncan Raitt and Jon Marsh) An original and post-watershed take on the Aardman school of animation.
S02E02 Episode 2 20/02/2011 The second of BBC HD's short film compilations showcases the work of some of Britain's up-and-coming filmmakers, presented in partnership with BBC Film Network. Rory Kinnear and Jodie Whittaker star in the Oscar-nominated Wish 143, while Alfie Allen comes up against an ominous authority in Tom Harper's Cherries, along with five more thrilling and visually adventurous short stories. Wish 143 (dir. Ian Barnes) An Oscar-nominated short film about a young man desperate to come of age before time runs out. David is a fifteen-year-old boy with only months to live, who is granted one final wish from a charity. But doesn't want to go to Disneyland or meet Gary Neville; what he really wants is an hour alone with a naked woman. Cherries (dir. Tom Harper) Starring Alfie Allen, this is a highly original take on teenagers today, their preoccupations and their challenges, set in the possible near future. Night School (dir. Ben Soper) A reflection on teenage love and illusion as a young couple break into an abandoned school. Stranded (dir. Martin Malone) A race through the night with a difference, as a woman goes in search of help. The Rules of the Game (dir. Tom Daley) An exploration of love and betrayal as a groom reflects on a recent revelation. Tiga - What You Need (dir. Cassiano Prado) Fantastical surreal imagery set to a contemporary soundtrack.
