QUPID, 10min, Australia, Action/Romance
Directed by JE Flood

Kidnapped victim Roo must escape a wannabe Cupid before she is injected with an untested love syrum.

Director’s Statement:

Human beings are sexual beings and when we repress this side of ourselves there are destructive consequences. But QUPID isn’t a literal exploration of the issue. It functions as a fable, a warning against the detrimental impact of sexual repression.

Quentin (Paul Wilson) represents heteronormative society attempting to control and direct sexuality as a sy- ringe wielding Cupid. His antithesis is Roo (Sally Dulson), the story’s hero, a woman who does not allow society to deny her sexuality, nor her sexuality de ne her.

The backdrop for Quentin’s kidnappings is rural Australia, a setting heavy with ideas of tradition and somehow xed within our national psyche, despite the majority of Australians living in urban areas.

Although Australia is considered progressive on LGBTQI issues, correctional centres still operate in the country. these institutions provide “reparative therapy” for those who are supposedly suffering unwanted same-sex attraction. it is this delusion, equating homosexuality to a curable ailment, which first sparked the idea for a short film.

The consequences of Quentin’s attempt to control and direct sexuality is worn by Dominic. He is no longer a man, just an embodiment of his sex and sexuality. He exists solely to dominate Roo, without an identity. He is a warning against the detrimental impact of sexual repression.

Short Film: KARATE GIRL BRAWL, 10min, Canada, Action/Thriller. Playing at Best of Action/Crime Film Festival

Playing at the FEEDBACK Film Festival. Thur. April 28th. Get your FREE Tickets today

  MOVIE POSTERKARATE GIRL BRAWL, 10min, Canada, Action/Thriller
Directed by Andy Hourahine

The film follows Charli Hackmann, an 18-year-old girl with a talent for finding the fight. Her violent past has helped her realize that the only enemies of worth are her inner demons, personified in this short as the BOSS. Her outer toughness means nothing to Charli, her true character is who she is in the dark and that is yet to be galvanized.

Director’s Statement:

The real battle lies within.

As a writer/director, I am drawn to themes of self-awareness, mental illness, psychology, depression, addiction, self-medication, personal triumph and tragedy. This is why when I had the chance to expand on the first micro-film, Karate Girl STREETFIGHT, I was eager to add more story and depth to the characters.

The film follows Charli Hackmann, an 18-year-old girl with a talent for finding the fight. Her violent past has helped her realize that the only enemies of worth are her inner demons, personified in this short as the BOSS. Her outer toughness means nothing to Charli, her true character is who she is in the dark and that is yet to be galvanized.

Martial arts are a fascinating subject and I have been fortunate to study them in North America, Europe, Japan, and Okinawa. I truly feel they are misunderstood and often misrepresented in the mainstream media. Old masters will tell you that it has nothing to do with fighting and everything to do with living to your fullest. I hope our endeavors here can further that message.

Production brought together the resources of many talented local individuals and I was very pleased to see so many people committed to independent film. Thanks to diligent work in pre-production, principal photography was completed by a skeleton crew in various locations over multiple days. Depsite budget and time constraints, we were still able to make use of some innovative film tools and I was pleased with how everything came together in post-production.

I wish to thank everyone in the pre-screening process for their positive feedback which has shaped the final product for the better. As well, my sincere thanks to a great cast and crew for bringing this short story to life; especially the beautiful and talented Julia Hourahine who showed strength, maturity, and professionalism well beyond her years as she smiled through the punches, kicks, slams, yanks, and long night shoots.
