Short films Musketeer, starring Pirates of the Caribbean actor Kevin McNally, and We Are the Apocalypse, written and directed by ex-Nirvana manager Charles William Lane, will premiere alongside Terry Stone documentary 25 Years of UK Garage at the Red Dog Cinema, Marbella.
The Euro Weekly News spoke to Lane, a TV producer for CNN in New York, about his own short film, the first he has ever directed.
He told the EWN: “I’d previously written a feature screenplay and its won a few awards, thought I’d make a short and get it produced.
“We are the Apocalypse is based on an art collective who want to become terrorists and kidnap the president. They end up kidnapping the wrong guy however, a grumpy old art critic, and it all goes wrong.
“It’s a black comedy, and it had its first premiere in LA at the Chinese Theatre where it went down really well. I’m hoping people will enjoy it here.”
He added: “It’s my first film and it was quite an experience. I definitely had to come to Marbella when they said it was up for an award.”
The EWN also spoke to Brit Daniel Drema, director of short film Through Their Eyes, a look at the world of speed dating.
He explained: “We used one actor and then 30 people improvising speed dating.
