SXSW Narrative Shorts: The Kármán Line

Director Oscar Sharp brings us The Kármán Line, a wonderful short film. Here is the synopsis from the SXSW site:

A mother is hit by an unusual condition and begins to rise gradually into the air.

An ambitious short starring double-BAFTA winner Olivia Colman (Tyrannosaur, Iron Lady, Hot Fuzz, Peep Show) and Shaun Dooley (The Woman in Black, Misfits, Eden Lake), shot by Robbie Ryan (Fish Tank, Philomena) and directed by Oscar Sharp, currently a Fulbright & BAFTA scholar at NYU’s Graduate Film programme.

This film is witty, tender, and funny all at once. It explores the wonders of life experience, the loneliness of illness, and how families of those afflicted cope with change.

It is a beautiful entry into this year’s festival and one that’s not to be missed.
