BEST OF THE DRUID UNDERGROUND FILM FESTIVAL DVD PROGRAM
THE GREAT PACKARD LINCOLN BREAKDOWN - Damon Packard
Packard’s 88 Lincoln breaks an axle. Narrated by the late, great Sage Stallone.
I LIVE IN THE WOODS - Max Winston
Winston stop-motion animates a rowdy, purple bearded sprite who leaps about the forest doing whatever his little black heart desires (including violent clashes with local taxidermy animals come to life). The only challenger to his throne is God himself.
TELL-A-VISION - Dave Kidd
A gang of crusty old Humboldt county punks blow away television sets with 12-gague shot-guns under a freeway onramp before the cops show up.
VISIONS OF TERROR - Rodney Ascher
Arscher’s love of grainy VHS horror movies becomes concentrated in a ghostly character played by Josh Fadem who episodically interrupts a woman’s life in order to recommend cheesy VHS for her to watch.
BUG SHOW - Aimee Goguen
Goguen and her friend discover a bizarre desert insect.
CRISPY - Darren Herczeg
The horror of a juicy, crispy hair permanent.
DECORATION AND YOU - Trulee Grace Hall
Filmmaker Trulee Grace Hall constructed over a half dozen renditions of the same dollhouse- the largest being the two story, human-sized set she places her characters within. What starts as a do-it-yourself instruction video gives way to a barrage of “decoration” suggestions that serve to distract the viewer as the scale of the characters and their surroundings become magically inter-changeable.
LET’S MEAT - Ben Cuevas
A lofty poet narrates the thrill of two lovers who integrate raw meat into their sexual rendezvous.
OUROBOROS NEVADA - Vitamin Wig C
Beer cans, back yards, stage make-up and mirrored, musical images unfold in whimsical darkness. A nice place to be.
THE BEE HIVE - Lee Lynch
An experimental scholastic film made to convey the aesthetics and wonderment of nature.
APRIL’S FOOL - Moises Jimenez
Jimenez animates multi-colored skeletons among a glowing battery of scratches and slashes over timeless film footage of a ghostly little girl.
HORS-HUMAIN - Yann Minh
Minh documents a day in the life of a free spirited man who hangs upside-down off of a freeway onramp, escapes the police, and sings at the top of his lungs.
FREEDOM FOREVER - Billy Burgess
Joe is a man at the end of his rope until the Grim Reaper himself is called upon to straighten him out. Partially shot in Trulee Grace Hall’s dollhouse set before the building was demolished to make a parking lot.
