PROGRAMMERS NOTES

In this dark psychological drama, an unnamed desk jockey arrives at work to find his boss missing. His dream of his boss’ demise the night before at the hands of a masked man is unsettling. After he receives a strange phone call accusing him of the death, he is completely unnerved—a crack in his mild-mannered veneer breaks open.

Jack Li’s second short film dials up the tension without displaying the brutality of the plot. Grey is a story with a larger cultural context, but it questions our personal desire to mask our shadowy side for the sake of social acceptance.
