Western Australian filmmaker Stuart Bender returns with two new short films, for one night only: THE ARGENTINIAN ESCAPE and INSIDE THE DANCE.
THE ARGENTINIAN ESCAPE is about an army pilot who travels to South America on vacation with his fiancée. When she is kidnapped and he is drawn into a violent encounter with an underground Argentinian drug smuggling operation. This short was shot and produced entirely in Perth, Western Australia and continues in the low-buget high action vein of Bender’s other films. He and his small team have become expert in creating maximum screen mayhem using stunts and post-production effects
