Program 3: DARK
The last program in this year’s run of the Lesley University Independent FIlm Festival is Dark. The films in this program are primarily experimental. They delve inside the character’s mental situations and the filmmaker’s thought processes are explored. Films in this category are, as expected, the darkest in tone and approach.
