The American Cinematheque presents Comedy Shorts on
Wednesday, March 9th at 7:30 PM at the Egyptian Theatre, featuring some of the funniest shorts from the recent festival circuit, including four Los Angeles premieres.
Screenings are at the Lloyd E. Rigler Theatre at the
historic 1922 Egyptian (6712 Hollywood Boulevard between Highland and Las Palmas) in Hollywood.
The following films will screen:
Jonny McGovern’s “Gay Pimp Daddy – Looking Cute” Los
Angeles Premiere! (4 min, USA). A spoof of the typical rap music video.
Aundre Johnson’s “F***ing Hollywood” Los Angeles Premiere! (18 min., USA) That’s what the sign in the Hollywood hills reads, sans asterisks, in this film about a night in the life of aspiring players.
Olivier Venturini’s “In the Bathroom” Los Angeles Premiere! (8 min., UK). In a posh, modern hotel, a dapper young man and a stylish woman rush into an elevator with a huge suitcase and begin ravaging one another in sexual frenzy – – even before the opulent doors can conceal their lust. The passion immediately turns to a knock-down fight in their hotel room.
Harb’s “Cut and Run” Los Angeles Premiere! (15 min., USA). A tough talking, rough walking bounty hunter enrolls in beauty school and redefines Southern masculinity. This short is filled with righteous rednecks and really big hair.
Jay Field’s “Displaced” (23 min., Canada). The director
stars as a Frenchman who was mistakenly born into an English family.
Neele Vollman’s “My Parents” (19 min., Germany). Multi-Award Winner! Marie is nuts about her new boyfriend, but utterly panicks by the prospect of having to introduce him to her loser parents.
