Why So Sirius? by Karel Šindelář (Czech Republic, 2018, 15 min)
No help anywhere, no signal. Too far to reach anywhere on foot. Two scared women, one of which ran over the husband of the other, will sooner or later have to deal with a situation in which no tested procedures apply. No natural patterns of behaviour. A black comedy about the absurdity of human interaction. About life and death. About cars, misunderstanding and a little bit about LARP.
