At just over four minutes in length, the Danish sci-fi short ARENE doesn't waste any time getting to the action.
Set in a apocalyptic future, the titular Arene (Katarina Strahinic) is a seemingly unassuming woman being held captive aboard a military transport aircraft.
However, her captors quickly realize there is much more to her than meets the eye.

Written and directed by Henrik B. Clausen, ARENE boasts dynamic fight scenes and action sequences, complemented by impressive visual effects for an independent film.
The film's biggest drawback is its very brief running time. It feels like you are watching a single scene from a much longer movie.
You definitely are left wanting to know more about Arene, as well as the world she inhabits.
My hope is the filmmakers garner enough support to be able to revisit the world of ARENE either via a series or feature-length film.
