Film Shorts from Wholphin

Click to enlarge.

A wholphin is a cross between a whale and a dolphin: real but improbably odd. Wholphin is also quarterly DVD magazine of ponderable films, published by McSweeney’s. Wholphin editor Brent Hoff will join the event via Skype to present a hand-picked variety of daring short films that deserve to be seen. Bring a blanket, lawn chair and a sense of adventure. Wholphin DVDs for sale in the IMA Store.
