OK, now how cool is this!? I love, love, love short films. Everything about the format. Everything about the creative. Everything about the story telling. It’s always appealed to me. Sitting in a theater for 108 minutes waiting for a (usually predictable) plot to unfold is boring. “Helvetica” being the sole, recent exception.
The Sundance Film Festival is something I look forward to every year. Why? I just really like the quantity of creativity. For instance:
Madam Tutli-Putli is a story of a lady who hopped the night train and found herself stuck between real and imagined worlds.
The Apology Line was the most talked about documentary at Sundance. You know the one, where folks can call up and confess any old thing. Yeah, a must see.
Wind, Ten Years Old is the story of a 10-year old Iranian student and the propaganda machine that is her school system.
Please Stand Back is a film about soundscapes – architecture’s effect on the sound shapes in urban spaces. Having seen Fountainhead for the first time this past year I’m drawn to movies on architecture and structures as art.
