Overview
Ten award-winning short films that don't suck. Including...

La Jetee: This universally acclaimed film by director Chris Marker was the inspiration for Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys. By turns poetic, surreal, and bitterly ironic, La Jetee is a bona fide masterpiece of world cinema.

The Making of "Portrait of a Lady": And intimate study of an auteur at the height of her powers, directed by Peter Long and Kate Ellis, this glimpse into the creative process at work of art in its own right. Featuring Nicole Kidman, John Malkovich, and Jane Campion.

Depth Solitude: An underwater caretaker falls in love with a beautiful swimmer. Max von Sydow narrates this lyrical ode to isolation, directed by Joachim Solum and Thomas Lien.

A Girl's Own Story: This incipient work from Academy Award Winner Jane Campion revisits an idyllic era when minisirts were risque, the Beatles reigned supreme, and dreams proved stronger then reality.

The Big Brass Ring: Adapted from a story by Orson Welles. Malcom McDowell plays a political icon who verbally spars with a tenacious journalist. George Hickenlooper directs with a keen ear for Welles' rich dialogue.
