Michael Duignan's short film Ten Thousand Days has a definite Quentin Tarantino flavor with a frothy topping of macabre absurdity. Every male member of the Duncan clan dies on his 10,000th day of life, and Darby Duncan is convinced that he's next. But what happens when death doesn't go according to plan?

Benedict Wall plays the supposedly doomed Darby Duncan and Morgana O'Reilly plays Arabella, the woman Darby meets at his cousin's funeral. Give it a watch and look out for magpies.
