Five interconnected stories come together in Echoes, the second film in the Lexus Short Films series.
It’s 3am and a comedian is having an off night. In a moment of desperation he begins to muse on love and life, his musings become the anchor to the stories of five isolated individuals. An expectant father waiting in a bar, an executive driving home, an astronaut in space, a young woman going for a late night swim and a singer waiting to go on stage are all experiencing a surreal moment of clarity.
Special Problems are New Zealand-based directing duo Campbell Hooper and Joel Kefali. With a background in fine art, they have previously shown shorts at the Tribeca Film Festival and formed a collaboration with rock band The Naked And Famous, whose music videos have clocked up millions of views on YouTube.
