WonderRoot Film Selections Join Emerging Artists 2011

Selections from WonderRoot's Local Film Series

Monica Ellis 'An Untitled Film About Flying'
This dark and moody, but surreal and colorful narrative explores what it means to be in love using a mix of armature and clay-based puppetry in a found object and crafted interior setting.

Brian Danin 'Kinder Surprise'
Stop motion animation of Kinder Surprise (German Chocolates). A true international favorite. But, they are illegal in the U.S. because they are considered a choking hazard. A film/animation by Brian Z. Danin. Co-Directed by Even Perez, and music by Mikhail Ally.

Chelsea Raflo 'You Will Eventually'
Chelsea explores temporal memory, space and movement in this experimental piece.

Aaron Keuter and Ashley Anderson 'XxxCuzx Me'
“XxzCuzx Me” is a meditation on chaos, evolution, and machinism, set to a delightfully frenetic song by the group, Crystal Castles. Symmetrical in its form, it invites the viewer to consider the organized whole of the robotic organism that stems from the maddeningly uncertain and intricate detail of its singular parts.
