Short Comedy Films at the Y
There is a scene in Godfather 2 when Robert De Niro tenderly looks down upon his son in the crib in defused light, and there is my favorite Keith Haring's painting on the left of a father holding his child high. In reality, life is not as serene or playful, but for an evening, I can enjoy movies, holding the only 14 month old at the The Iron Mule Short Comedy Films shown at the Tribeca Y. I got to see some amazing shorts in the April edition. In Houseguest, Julian Assange (of WikiLeaks fame) is an awful houseguest. In the adorable Oktapodi, two octopuses try to escape. In The Man in the Blue Gordini, a radical clothing revolution targets the monochromic orange totalitarianism, thanks to the Pied Pier in blue Gordini. In the Sounds of Summer Camp, a NFL training session becomes a rap song. The hilarious Bacon is a 12 part documentary journey through the myth, legend of bacon. In "Television is a Drug", the TV tries to get your attention. And finally, in Regrets: Kid, a mother faces her forgetfulness.
