About Any Given Night

Runtime: 15 minutes

Genre: Short

Unapologetic, unabashed and determined to have a great night
out, Noor and Emily party their way through a seemingly ordinary
night out. Or so they thought. These two best friends navigate an
increasingly bizarre night of crushes, too much alcohol, and
strange men. Set in a utopian world, where women are always
safe, the girls have nothing to worry about. Yet, something
doesn’t quite feel right. This dark comedy challenges the way in
which women’s safety is viewed in society today. Following a
night out with two young liberal arts college students, it questions
the ways in which women are forced to be vigilant about every
little thing.
