MOUSSE, a Swedish Comedy Short Film with a lot of awards.

Mousse trailer from John Hellberg on Vimeo.

I was recently contacted John Hellberg from the Comedy Film “Mousse” that has been on the independent festival circuit for a few years. This 41 minute film is too long for our current format, and will not screen at PCFF, but I have seen the film and it is amazing. The cinematography, color, acting and overall production value of this film are outstanding and you can tell that a lot of deep thought and hard work was put into this film. Please support this film and go see it, if it happens to play in your area. Here are a list of awards and screening so far.
