How 'Bout a Little Film?

There's tension in our shorts

Short films are analogous to poems; the economy of time results in an artful compression of subject matter that lends maximum impact to the story. The St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase celebrates the poetry of these little gems with two separate programs of shorts today at the Tivoli Theatre (6350 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-289-4150 or www.cinemastlouis.org). At 5 p.m., the Documentary Shorts installment presents six films, including “Bad Folk Story,” Zlatko Cosic’s history of the band Bad Folk and Randy Shinn’s “Pornoland,” a look at pornography’s place in America. At 9:30 p.m., the Dramatic Tension program screens ten films, and we can’t wait to see Peter Carlos’ vampires vs. werewolf story, “Tooth and Nail.” Admission is $8 to $10 for each session.
