Undershorts Film Festival 7

The 20 underground shorts in this latest extravaganza by Trevor Arnholt range from cheeky to hypnotic. Macho Box, from the hyper-talented collective MK12, is a knockout, its bold graphics ripping along like falling dominoes as a narrator explores the mystique of Brazil. In Atlas Gets a Drink, Web-toonist and animator Mike Overbeck conjures up walking fish and carnivorous cows; in State of the Union, Waking Life alumni Jason Archer and Paul Beck lampoon George W. Bush with protean images nearly liquid in their flow. Eric Fensler's surreal music video Loki: Six Feet of Space is a resonant mood piece, while Friends Forever, a documentary by his pal Doug Lussenhop, captures the ecstatic abandon of an impromptu street concert.
