Trailer: Upcoming One of a Kind Short Film 'E.D.D.'

Jonell Rowe calls his new short film a “psychological/dark
comedy/drama,” which may be a first for any film that I know of, or at least
for a short film.

The themes
of the film, which was produced by filmmaker Moses Ssebandeke (“The Third
Choice”), are, according to the filmmaker, “Zen
Buddhism, Hate and The Threat of Death… with the style of the film being a
surrealism mix between Fight Club and Black Swan.”

And if that
isn’t deep enough for you, Rowe, who studied at the British performing art
school, The Brit School in Croydon, said
that he wanted to “explore the theme of
hate in a surrealistic setting, that would highlight the damage it could cause
to those around us, if the consequences for our own actions was beyond our
natural control.”

The short
film follows the journey of a young woman who has been hospitalized after a
near death accident. During her stay at the hospital, she wakes up one night to
be confronted by a mysterious patient, claiming to know Rose and the reasons
for the accident happening in the first place.

What follows
is a mystery in which the woman tries to discover the answers to the mystery, but
instead finds herself “entering a world
where past events and hidden secrets are brought to light and the painful truth
behind them becomes a harsh reality.”

Here’s the
trailer for E.D.D.
