A roundup of the some of the best short films of the year and a glimpse at a promising upcoming feature, all from NY-based filmmakers.
Works to be screened include:
- The Black Balloon (Directors: Benny and Josh Safdie, 2012, 21 min.)
A winner of awards at both Sundance and SXSW, this retelling of the The Red Balloon follows the sole black balloon in a brightly colored bunch as he breaks free and observes the urban isolation in crowded New York City.
- Family Nightmare (Director: Dustin Guy Defa, 2011, 10 min.)
A masterful use of found footage, VHS home movies are dubbed in the filmmaker's own voice to show a haunting, innocent view of family dysfunction.
- Me the Terrible (Director: Josephine Decker, 2012, 11 min.)
Featuring stop-motion animation and a soundtrack made up entirely of audio from early 20th century radio shows, a little girl pirate invades New York where the essential urban turf battle is between the past and the future.
- Circles (Director: Sam Fleischner, 2012, 5 min.)
Edited footage from a screen audition of Jesus Sanchez, the star of Fleischner's new feature Stand Clear of the Closing Doors, about a young autistic boy who runs away from his family and lives on the NY subway for 11 days.
- People Parade (Director: Chris Maggio, John Wilson, 2012, 23 min.)
A surreal comedy about the end of the reign of a long-running television variety show (reminiscent of early David Letterman) features Peruvian daredevils The Peanut Butter Brothers, a haggard showgirl named Dee and more delightfully bottom barrel show business folks.
Part of the La Di Da Film Festival.
