Beast of Stray short
trailer for the full film

My sister and I have worked together since she showed up at my house in 1980. This was her MFA thesis at Cal Arts in 2010. Her movies are always crazy epic tales existing in only worlds she can make-up. She pulled a short out of the longer version, here the main character and some stray women find themselves in an abandoned water tower for a more than unusual experience. This film felt very close the the Agnes Varda film I have also chosen for this series where the character is trying to escape the world we know only to be constantly beaten down by it.
