Watch Trailer For the Quirky, Funny Short Film 'Ackee & Saltfish'

nullHere’s the trailer for the an upcoming UK-made short film, "Ackee & Saltfish," which one could definitely call quirky.

Judging from the trailer, it has a loose-limbed, free-flowing, improvisational tone that I found

similar to Robert Altman films. Just when you think you know where it’s going, it shifts and goes into a different direction altogether.

Starring Michelle Tiwo and Vanessa Babirye, and written,

directed and photographed by Cecile Emeke, the film deals with two best friends,

Olivia and Rachel, spending a sunny day in east London, on their way to pick up

some food, after Rachel forgets to soak the saltfish.

That’s it; but their comedic rambling conversation about

everything and anything, is the main focus of the film.

The film is scheduled to be released later this summer. To keep up with the latest developments, you can check out the film’s website
