With the 24th Annual Dusty Film & Animation Festival just around the corner (May 4 – 7 at the SVA Theatre, 333 West 23rd Street), we thought it would a good time to share stills from some of the many works screening at one of SVA’s most highly anticipated events of the year.
The Sneaky Boa Brothers by Tighe Kellner
A coming of age story about a gang of two nihilistic orphan brothers and their convergence of separate hidden ideals. The younger brother, Roy, is pushed to make a choice when his older brother, Troy, favors a severely savage way of being.
The Crawler by Seth Brady
One bright, blue summer day, a tough, legless young woman is hired to retrieve copper wiring from a condemned house. Nothing weird happens.
Punella by Daniel Rodrigo Arias
Albertina, a 13-year-old who lives in the slums outside of Lima, takes care of her mother who is too sick to work. Albertina decides not to attend school and instead replaces her mother as the maid in a wealthy household.
Kush by Shubhashish Bhutiani
Inspired by a true story: In 1984, Indian Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, was assassinated by her two Sikh bodyguards, causing anti-Sikh riots to erupt throughout the country. A teacher, traveling back from a field trip with her class of 10-year-old students, struggles to protect her one Sikh student, Kush, against the growing violence.
Baglewolf by Deanna DeMaglie
A timid raccoon becomes helplessly possessed by a bagel moon, becoming a monstrous, dumpster diving, bagel devouring beast.
