Ms Understanding (1999) [Short]

Australia (MIFF 2000 , Fiction)
Director: Khristina Totos

An attractive young woman wearing a short skirt enters an inner city cafe late at night. The cafe is empty but for a few older men and a young man who quickly exits. As the young woman goes about her business, buying a packet of cigarettes, the men ogle and wolf-whistle. The young man re-enters the cafe and asks the young woman, "Are you the escort?" The tension of sexual politics explodes.
