DUMOT (Short Film Program 5)
- When our patience runs dry, is it because we are already fed up with the complexities of daily life in our locales or are we just entertaining the fact that our unwarranted hatred for some individuals needs to be dealt with? Hatred thematically connects these films while audiences are presented with characters whose personal spaces are violated. Analyzing how matters get resolved is an interesting point of discussion for this program. Who does it right? Who doesn't get to realize mistakes? Who comes out triumphant despite the odds?
