SHORTA by Frederik Louis Hviid and Anders Ølholm, producer: EAVE graduate Signe Leick Jensen is in post-production. The story, written in its entirety by the young duo, centres on Talib Ben Hassi, a 19-year-old boy whose life hangs by a thread. The exact details of what took place while he was in police custody remain unclear. Police officers Jens and Mike are on routine patrol in the local ghetto when news of Talib’s death comes in over the radio, igniting uncontrollable, pent-up rage in the ghetto’s youth, who want revenge. Suddenly, the two officers find themselves fair game and must fight tooth and nail to find a way out. SHORTA is being produced by Signe Leick Jensen and Morten Kaufmann for Copenhagen-based outfit Toolbox Film. The feature has also received backing from the Danish Film Institute and will be ready for theatrical release in October next year.
