SHORTS COMPETITION PROGRAM 5: CINEVERSES - Cinequest Film Festival 2006
This inspiring collection of shorts pays homage to the actorís craft and the storytellerís gift for imagination. Up on the Rope presents a boy with an unusual perspective on life. In this case, itís quite literal. Veteran British actor Alan Corduner (The White Countess, Vera Drake) plays an obsessive dandy in Against Nature, an upper crust scribe whose universe couldnít be more ordered. Thatís unfortunate for the homeless wreck outside his window. Bay Area filmmaker Jay Rosenblatt brings us his latest offering: an elegy for his deceased brother and a meditation on coping with loss. Uso Justo is a community just east of the border that comes to life when a film crew rolls into a town. The enthusiastic residents quickly realize, however, that they are obliged to obey some very basic rules of storytelling. Lastly, weíre in an apartment in post-war Vienna, and itís the final rehearsal. The scene? A battered ferris wheel car high above the banks of the Danube. Orson Welles has only minutes to give birth to one of cinemas more memorable speeches. Vincent DíOnofrio (Law and Order, Ed Wood) directs and stars.
