Competition Countdown: No Easy Way Out

In the countdown to this year's Encounters Festival we share a selection of trailers from each of the International Competition Screenings.

SHORT FILM 5: NO EASY WAY OUT (15)

Screening at 12:30 Thurs 18 September at Watershed

Captives or exiles, chased, put to the test or forced to take extreme measures in order to survive, for the characters in this programme the stakes are high with no exit in sight. Taking a look at the many different ways life can put us on the line, the gripping stories in this eclectic selection of shorts will leave you wondering just how far you would be prepared to go to find a way out.
