Gideon Verite: one of many great shorts for 2011

The heart of Brainwash is the movies we show. That’s why we call ourselves the world’s only drive-in bike-in walk-in MOVIE festival.

One of this year’s shorts, Gideon Verite by Raquel Cedar, is in the classic Brainwash style. In an absurdist style somewhat reminiscent of Being John Malkovich, Gideon Verite creates an eccentric and theatrical universe where, in the words of the director,

“… the MGM lion is human, the cinematographer a musical conductor of lights, gaffers and grips carry film equipment on their backs like ants, producers wear black leather and are employed by the Mafia, and editing is done sitting on the floor buried in a pile of footage.”

It’s a lot of fun and it anchors our second night, September 9th. Check out the trailer here, then come see it and a whole host of other entertaining movies by up-and-coming moviemakers — buy tickets today!
