Absolution - Best for Fests short film

Short film by Lauren Spohn (USA: 6 minutes 24 seconds - 2022)

Labelled BEST FOR FESTS by curator Bruno Chatelin former head of Fox and Sony in France, founder and editor


"I am in a dark forest and something is chasing after me,  some sort of creature that reeks fire or something: one part of me wants to run but I cannot move my legs? I am totally paralysed..." 

"One last thing"he said : "it's not your fault !"


A man sees his psychiatrist for help with a difficult hidden family secret. The conversation takes a sinister turn as the psychiatrist pushes deeper into the man’s past. All is not what it seems: 

Can he take the tension, will you?
