  • It's All in the Fingers

    2009. Poland/Japan. Directed by Kei Ishikawa. Those traveling digits get into surprising places in this jocular treat. 10 min.

  • Harmony and Me

    2009. USA. Directed by Bob Byington. Byington's hilariously deadpan slacker movie for the cell phone generation is straight out of that independent film capital, Austin, Texas, where a voluble young lyricist named Harmony refuses to let go of the heartbreak caused when his girlfriend became his ex. He remains stubbornly unhappy, perhaps for musical inspiration or perhaps because it's just the way he is. Although his depression annoys his tough mom, Harmony's friends, as oddball and eccentric as he, seem perfectly cool with his cultivation of misery. Starring musician Justin Rice as motor mouth Harmony and Kevin Corrigan as his companion Carlos, Byington's film presents a goofy portrait of a bright guy and his buddies (women included) running in place. 75 min.
