Cannes Information...

Cannes Short Film Corner LogoWell Miriam & I may not be able to go to Cannes, but that doesn't mean I can't talk about it here does it?

It does? Well screw that, I'm breaking them rules!

Our little film has a whole section of the Cannes website dedicated to it.* Linky? I think so!

They also took the time to do a whole special blurb for it, which is nice - because we're never sure how to say anything about it without spoiling the plot:

When a young woman arrives in heaven, she is greeted by a rather unorthodox gatekeeper and his bizarre requirements to be allowed entrance into the afterlife. Sardonic and laced with dry humor, this animated short pokes fun at how sometimes our expectations of the divine overshadow the often painful and hilarious truth.
[and for the Francophone's in the audience]
Le ciel n'est pas tout qu'on le fend jusqu'à soit quand un nouveau venu fatigué arrive aux portes nacrées ! Quand une jeune femme arrive dans le ciel, elle est saluée avec quelques conditions plutôt bizarres d'être permis l'entrée dans la vie après la mort. Ce short animé sarcastique pousse l'amusement à la façon dont parfois nos espérances du divin éclipsent la vérité souvent douloureuse et hilare.
