LILI Trailer: #MeToo Horror Short Film From Yfke Van Berckelaer
Dutch filmmaker Yfke Van Berckelaer's latest short film Lili has been making the festival rounds this past Summer and we have the trailer to share with you this morning.
Lili (Lisa Smit – Netflix’s Ares) knows she has to nail this audition. The Man (Derek de Lint – Soldier of Orange/The Unbearable Lightness of Being) she auditions for, knows this too. Thus starts an uncomfortable cat and mouse game in this #metoo horror, about power, the misuse of power and female empowerment.
We have seen Lili. We have watched it slowly descend into genuinely creepy territory then turn right savage. All shot in a single-take you think you know where it is going and you're partially right. Until...
