Drawcard by Antonia Oreña Barlin: Staff Pick

June 22, 2017

Staff pick film, Drawcard, directed by Antonio Oreña Barlin, competed in the Audience Awards 2016 Live Action Short Film Festival and screened at AudFest in April.

When a lighthearted office prank goes a little pear shaped, Ed is left to pick up the pieces and try to save not only his job but his dignity. Drawcard is a film about misdirected intentions, innocent mistakes and our inability to handle them as adults. We don’t get in trouble as often as we used to, but when it happens as a grown up that sick-in-the-guts feeling is all too familiar. Tina Fey says “There are no mistakes, just happy accidents”. For Ed this “happy accident” could cost him his job. Maybe.
