Film Shorts from Wholphin
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.
Two Cars, One Night: (2004, 12 mins., dir. Taika Waititi): Perhaps the best short film ever made.
Please Vote For Me: (2007, 32 mins., dir. Weijun Chen): A class of Chinese third graders hold a democratic election and end up unintentionally mocking 300 years of American politics.
Six Dollar Fifty Man: (2009, 15 mins., dirs. Mark Albiston, Louis Sutherland): Sundance-winning Short from Australia.
Doc Ellis and the LSD No-No: (2010, 5 mins., dir. James Blagden): Animated tale of one of baseball's least known, and most amazing moments.
Can We Talk? (2012, 11 mins., dir. Jim Owen): The most humiliating break up of all time.
Successful Alcoholics: (2010, 25 mins., dir. Jordan Vogt-Roberts): A Sundance hit featuring a very inebriated couple.
In case of inclement weather, the program will move to The Toby and will start at 9 pm.
