Pain Staking (USA, 11 Minutes )
Directed by: Adolfo Martinez Perez
Written by: Adolfo Martinez Perez
Cast: Chris Warner, Christopher Neiman
It was a wonderful day, the sun shone, the birds chirped... until the best-friend-asking-for-a-favor from hell showed up. A battle of wills unfolds as terminally sick Phil demands help to have a death with dignity, and bulky but meek Marty wriggles his way out of the emotional headlock. Both, the sick man who wanted to avoid pain at all costs, and the insensitive friend who wanted to stay out of trouble, will get precisely their just desserts in this dramedy. If you feel uncomfortable laughing at no laughing matter, we did our job: your discomfort is our pleasure.
