Periwig maker is narrated by the excellent Kenneth Branagh and follows a man quarantined inside his home whilst a plague ravages outside (links to current events perhaps?!) The art style is very mesmeric and well crafted. It's not a very long film, indeed it is only 15 minutes long but that's all the more reason to check it out for yourself. Plot is straightforward and the ending intense.

8/10: Very intelligent artsy film
