If youre a fan of Dave Eggerss literary magazine McSweeneys, youre probably already familiar with Wholphin, their quarterly DVD magazine that brings a wide range of short films, docs, instructional videos, foreign sitcoms, and other quirky works to your doorstep. Tonight, as a part of IFCs Stranger Than Fiction documentary series, Wholphin curator Brent Hoff presents 90 minutes of his favorite shorts from several recent issues. The works include Arsy Varsy, a film from Slovenia that Hoff says is perhaps the most cathartically wonderful and uplifting documentary short film Ive ever seen; Here Comes Greatness, about underground backyard wrestling; and an episode of Derek Waterss very funny Drunk History.
