“WINGING IT” – a night of comedy short films

FRI 10 NOV

Talkies Bowes and Bounds in partnership with Short Sighted Cinema – the home of British short film.

The programme is a selection of heartwarming and entertaining shorts that take an honest, fun and original look at the challenges, questions and absurdities of everyday life. A funny and uplifting reminder that we’re all just, ‘winging it!’. Featuring tales of mid-life crises, terrible job interviews, awkward reunions, and life-changing decisions.

Short Sighted Cinema curates programmes of the very best emerging British talent, with everything from animation to comedy, drama to documentary – with a gritty edge and a comic tone. Audiences are led on a journey through each theme, with highs and lows that will bring you to tears, inspire you and leave you laughing with joy.

DIAL IT BACK
A poetical message to humanity. Lyrical, sweary.

(3 mins)

ONE UNDER
David is stuck – doing a job he hates, living in a tiny Derbyshire backwater, bullied by his boss & his eccentric grandmother & being cheated on by his girlfriend. And when he finally tries to stand up for himself and become a hero – things don’t quite go to plan.

(10:35)

EXIT ROUTE
After a decade at a dead end, a wide-eyed ticket stub collector must quickly learn what it takes as she battles for a life-changing career opportunity.

(10:39)

THE DRIVING SEAT
One Saturday morning, a middle aged couple decide to make love in their car in the driveway to put a spark back in their marriage – only to find it has rather the opposite effect.

(9:08)

OH! BE JOYFUL
Potty-mouthed old RITA will stop at nothing to drag her granddaughter, SOPHIE kicking and screaming out of the closet. From spilling her own sordid secrets, to a botched shoplifting spree, she is determined to get Sophie to live honestly and face her future.

(15:03)

FLUSHED
Private moments. Public toilets.

(4:13)

PREGNANT PAUSE
Pee. Wait. Panic. Steph is in a happy, long-term relationship, but now she might be pregnant she has no idea what she wants.

(13:06)

STANDBY
A comedy about friendship and routines entirely set in a police patrol car. We see the day to day lives of two new partners Gary and Jenny…. think Traffic Cops but with gangster rappers and thieves.

(5:42)

CLANKER MAN
Terry is in charge of the government’s secret ‘urban ambience’ department around Palmers Green. While bemoaning the affects that austerity cutbacks are having on the department, his behaviour becomes increasingly unhinged.
