For its second year at Fantasia, the theme running across the curation for the shorts programme Born Of Woman has moved away from the cerebral physical fetishes, and queer emotional landscapes of last year, towards the nature of haunting. The highlights were the quieter, more introspective entries that focused on mood and precise cinematography from some impressive new cinematic voices. First and foremost was Mexico's The Last Light (pictured above), which, coincidentally or not, meticulously recreates the tone of the prologue from Don't Look Now. No small feat that, considering Nicolas Roeg's film has one of the greatest opening scenes in the history of film.

Discreet is a psychological thriller about a mentally disturbed drifter, who in returning home to Texas to make amends with an alcoholic mother, is confronted with a haunted past. Desperate to deal with his demons, Alex sets out to avenge the source, while engaging in psychosexual rendezvous with various strangers along the way. Flashbacks to abusive scenes, creepy motivational videos and images of a floating dead body, blur the lines between reality and fantasy in this thought-provoking, twisted mystery.
The film made its World Premier at the Berlinale film festival this past week, giving us a chance to meet and chat with director, Travis Mathews (Interior Leather Bar and I Want Your Love). In speaking with Mathews, one can easily detect his fascination with exploring taboo topics and delving into the deeper psyche of his characters, which explains his psychology background.
