Bernardo Leyte Cortés: “LFS was a profound formative experience for me” as graduate film nominated in Paris Play Film Festival

Kai, the films eponymous hero, lives in a grey, unnamed industrial city by the sea. For two days, the film follows him as he begins to experience powerful episodes and visions of something he doesn’t quite understand, but with which he becomes obsessed. Kai’s fate can only be decided by what he chooses to do next… if he has a choice, that is.
Congratulations to recent MAF graduate Ronen Eldar, whose Term 5 film GOOD LUCK MARC has been awarded the Silver Elephant for Best International Short at Short Film Breaks 2017.
Marc is over the moon when he wins an apartment in a mysterious race, until he begins to notice that the place is slowly shrinking … “GOOD LUCK MARC is a fantastical story about a man living in a space that slowly rejects him, and his attempt to stay no matter what,” says Ronen. “It’s about comfort zones and the fear of the unknown.”
