Directed by Julietta Boscolo, this short film from Victoria, Australia asks whether you can let in love if you lock in the past. It tells the tale of Mia, who is 31 and eternally single. Mia can never get past the second date because she's too scared to answer any questions about her past.

Until she discovers the Secrets Safe. The Secrets Safe "listens" to Mia's secrets, then encases them in a cement block, to be kept silent forever.

Marked by rich cinematography and a stirring performance by lead actor Adrienne Pickering, this fine example of female eye filmmaking is so layered and interesting, you can come back to it again and again and always be rewarded. Now an Official Selection 2013. You can watch the trailer here (some parental guidance suggested): Safe Trailer
