Old Faithful: Experimental Shorts

For me, comedy starts as a spew, a kind of explosion, and then you sculpt it from there, if at all. It comes out of a deeper, darker side. ~Robin Williams

Film Synopsis

The Sun was offended by her brother's behavior one day and hid away in a mountain cave as an act of passive protest. Representatives of a world plunged into darkness begged her to come out, but she refused. It was only after someone started a silly, racocious dance and the plight of the world was momentarily forgotten in laughter, that the Sun peeked out to see what could be so funny.

Fake News, alternative truths, global warming skeptics, apocalyptic prophets, survivalist preppers, end time logistics, peak oil apologists, climate change deniers; doomsday scenario.

Twitter storms, extreme weather alerts, spiking temperatures, rising tides, disappearing coastlines, an endless summer, a nuclear winter, the silent spring. Intra-species conflict, declining infrastructures, disappearing ecosystems, forced migration, opportunistic pathogens, mass extinction; the uncontained and the uncontainable.
