BEST SHORT NARRATIVE & DOCS
by Alessandro Farrattini Pojani, United Kingdom 2016
Corpse Remover takes a bit of a grim look into the year 2048 when taking a life, or at least asking the government if you can, is legal. We follow Sam whose job it is to clean up the mess as he finds himself muddled in the messiest business of all, juggling a marriage and a promising career all at once. Starring up-and-coming British actors Matthew Coulton and Ben Woods, Corpse Remover is about as unexpected as the 150% successful Kickstarter campaign we ran to make it.
