Short Film Friday aims to pass along short films that I find on the web. I have a massive appreciation for cinema, especially short films and documentaries. Want to play along? Share your short films with me on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #shortfilmfri.
The Wednesdays is a live action short film written and directed by Conor Ferguson. I first saw this film in 2007 or 2008 (I can’t remember exactly!) at the Irish Film Festival in Chicago. The Irish Film Festival is one of my favorite film festivals in the city! Every year, I clear my calendar to attend the closing “shorts” night. This film resonated with me and I am happy to have found it on YouTube and be able to share it with you after all of these years.
Synopsis: Feeling imprisoned by old age, Mr. & Mrs. O’Leary, long for a way to feel young again. They finally come across a solution and partake in it every Wednesday. However, their discovery lands them in trouble with the law.
