Wednesday Shorts: The Flying Man

Superheroes are everywhere these days. With the massive success of the Marvel film franchise, the X-Men films, and even DC Comic’s own movies, superheroes are bigger than they have probably ever been.

So, what it would be like if we had a real superhero walking among us? In this week’s offering, The Flying Man, we get a little glimpse of what a real life superhero might actually be like, and it’s a bit scary.

Written and directed by Marcus Alqueres, The Flying Man is less than ten minutes long, and raises a host of questions about what real world super powered people would be like, and what our response to them would be. It’s an engaging and thought provoking short film, well worth the watch.
