KEEP IT SHORT
Is it possible to learn to play the piano in 15 minutes? Or explain evolution in 10 minutes? Surely this doesnt seem plausible. But if you come to the kick-off party for Rooftop Films, an annual warm-weather ritual, youll see that actually a lot can be accomplished in very little time. Tonights program titled This Is What We Mean By Short Films presents eight different stories. Youll see one about a doomsayer who finally experiences his worst nightmare (Heartpocalypse); get an unscientific look at the consequences of evolution (Big Bang Big Boom); and watch a series of mundane happenstance all composed entirely of appropriated YouTube videos (Oops). You see, all is possible. The evening includes live music by guitar wizard Dustin Wong and an after-party with complimentary drinks.
