violence
A knife-wielding masked man attacks frightened people in a public place; there are brief images of blood on the knife but no clear sight of the blade making contact with anyone. In the chaos, a young child is glimpsed falling over the side of a bridge, but we do not see the aftermath.
threat and horror
There are scenes of moderate threat, including a short and visually discreet scene in which frightened people are attacked in a public place by a man wielding a knife.
language
There is use of strong language (‘f**k’). Milder terms include ‘shit’, ‘ass’, ‘piss’ and ‘bastard’.
sex
There are infrequent mild sex references.
sexual violence and sexual threat
References to child sexual abuse occur during a short film in which a mother procures an abortion for her pre-teen daughter; a flashback shows a police officer placing blood-stained underwear into an evidence bag while another attends the girl, who appears to be in shock following an off-screen attack. The references are otherwise discreet, and the subject is handled in an empathetic and sensitive manner.
suicide
There are scenes of suicide, although the visual detail is limited.
theme
There are upsetting scenes involving death and bereavement. Other issues include non-graphic scenes concerning an off-screen abortion.
flashing/flickering lights
This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
