THE NIGHT BEFORE THE MORNING AFTER (2013)
Superhero Me short film 2012

Unaware of her past, Anne’s friends do their best to help her get over a failed relationship.  When the pressure becomes too much, Anne's repressed traumas explode in a cathartic moment where she makes a choice that is both horrific and heroic.

 

Shown on:

Mouzam Makkar brings a subtly to her performance as Anne, who shows her discomfort with being hassled by the stranger her friends have left her with, while at the same time not hiding her inner emotions as she remembers her traumatic past....  The Night Before The Morning After does leave the viewer wanting more.
