Bravo!Fact Short Films Screening

There's a screening of Bravo!Fact short films downtown tomorrow, including the film Day Before Yesterday, written and produced by the incomparable Sarah Beckett, and directed by Patricia Chica, who was responsible for last year's Rockabilly 514, with a score by Courtney Wing. Also, they'll be screening Paul Neudorf's dance film Refractions, scored by Gabriel Dharmoo, and Vengeance, a mystical fish-out-of-water story directed by Lanan Adcock, scored by King Khan & BBQ Show and featuring a number of actors associated with Automatic Vaudeville Studios*, including Goldkicks RSS subscriber & RSS technical consultant Mark Slutsky & Laura Wills (of Pony Up and recently, The Dears). Not to be confused with the 2009 film of the same name: this film has drunken fishermen in it, not France's Elvis Presley, Johnny Hallyday.

Mark Slutsky on the lingering impression Vengeance made on his, prior to then, shaven life:
"This month marks my two-year beard anniversary. This beard was started
because director Lanan Adcock asked me not to shave for the month leading up to the shoot so as to create a rugged fisherman look. I liked it so much,I've had it ever since!"

Mr. Slutsky, in repose
