About

GREAT CHOICE
A woman gets stuck in a Red Lobster commercial.

Deer Boy
A hunter's son is born with antlers. A reflection on how each man kills the thing he loves.

Hair Wolf
In a black hair salon in gentrifying Brooklyn, the local residents fend off a strange new monster: white women intent on sucking the lifeblood from black culture.

Thursday Night
An elusive stranger pays Bimbo a visit in the middle of the night to deliver a vital message.

Black
A pair of astronauts is trapped on an orbital space station due to unexpected nuclear war on Earth. They lost contact with Earth, and all attempts to communicate with their base or anybody else have failed.

ULTRAVIOLET
A woman named Kanchana and several scorpions explore collaborative survival approaches in a posthuman future in which all living beings are considered equal. Interspecies sociability, the Anthropocene, and speculative fabulations unfold in a futuristic and enchanted world.

The Blazing World
Margaret has been plagued with dreams of a strange world since she was a little girl. After a mysterious man with a map visits her one night, she decides to give in to the incessant calls of The Blazing World.

The Shivering Truth
An omnibus of painfully riotous daymares dripping with dream logic; a slate of emotional parables from the deepest caverns of your unconscious, lovingly animated in stop-motion. In other words, it is the Truth.
