Highlights: Short films

"Come Mute"
Directed by Cheryl Dunn
The stultifying effects of office work take their toll, until the body breaks free, with infectious results.

Directed by Suk & Koch
A futuristic imagining of narcissistic duplication.

"The Sailor's Girl"
Directed by Brett Simon
A young woman with the ability to predict how one will die receives a dire portent
of her own death, but is unable to prevent her fated end.

Other: Videos

Bad Religion "Los Angeles is Burning"
Directed by Light-Borne
This cut-and-paste banger puts pretty much everything hated about LaLa land to the torch.

Thavius Beck "To Make Manifest"
Directed by Ben Barnes
Cops investigate a bloody crime scene while an abstract rapper puts his breath control to unexpectedly stealthy usage.

Los Amigos Invisibles "Playa Azul"
Directed by Carlos Lowenstein
It's hard for a group from Venezuela to struggle through the harsh North American winters -- until they meet their snowmen alter egos.

Colder "Crazy Love"
A sharp-looking rotoscoped clip featuring a running figure captured from all angles; directed by the musical artist.

Faultline "Biting Tongues"
Directed by Vernie Young
Techno-dub excursion brilliantly harnessed as the soundtrack to a magnificently colored, frenetic new vidfilm.

Also: Geoff McFetridge retrospective

This month's mini-retrospective features a selection of the work of graphics artist
and designer Geoff McFetridge, known for his work with Milk Fed and X-Large.

DJs Aurelito and Shakespeare of I&I Productions helm the decks at the screening
after-party: known in LA for their underground dancehall/prog/hip hop Chocolate Bar parties at Gabah, but mainly for their mission to bring the music to the people in their converted ice cream truck/mobile sound system.

Shakespeare, originally from Crown Heights, Brooklyn, bought the '69 ice cream truck
a few years ago, and spent nearly a year decking it out into a reggae/dancehall

Last thing: have a summer booze-up on the house, with complimentary drinks courtesy
Red Stripe and Izze.
