Night Cinema: Vitamin Pills
“Hello Doctor, I’m afraid I’m not feeling well at all. It’s these Black Nights – I rarely get to see the sun this time of year, and it’s so cold outside that when I wake up, I can read what I’ve been saying in my sleep. Of course, living in Estonia, I’m used to it. But surely there’s something I can do to make these dark days a little brighter?”
“Why of course there is. I recommend a prescription of Vitamin Pills to be taken during the Night Cinema at PÖFF Shorts. Containing a large dose of humour, alongside the active ingredients of surrealist flights of fancy and eye-popping visuals, these films are exactly what the doctor ordered. I’d say that you’d need at least an hour’s worth for them to be truly effective. And with them all being 10 minutes or under, they do slip down without the need for water.” “Hmm, interesting. Are there any side effects?”
“Well, there’s the laughing and enjoyment, which can range from acute to severe, alongside a general feeling of well-being and contentment with the world. Of course, it will also make you want to return to the cinema again and again. Which is not a bad thing, surely.” “Sold. I’ll get myself to Night Cinema for these Vitamin Pills. What do I need?” “That’s the best thing. No prescription required. Just add a dark cinema and all will be well.
There’s not much that good short films can’t cure.”
