Starring Margot Kistler (@gogokist), Dal Walton (@theDalofLaughter), Shawn Stoner (@shawn_stoner) and Joe Mitchell

Today’s short, Malacostraca, explores the depths of obsession and resentment. A writer, desperate to finish his elusive novel, grapples new with the burden of an unexpected birth, as he struggles to complete his work.
A wholly uncomfortable experience (and we mean this in the best of ways). Do not miss it this Thursday at @elcidsunset. Doors open at 7pm.
Also, special thanks to Megan Bacon Duffy for connecting us with director Charles Pieper (@cpieper)! It was a goal of ours to start not just a night, but a community of filmmakers and viewers alike, and feels like its happening faster than we could have imagined. Thank you all for being a part of it!
