Bay Area filmmaker Jon Moritsugu (Fame Whore, Mod Fuck Explosion) is known for his angry, manic energy, but the characters in this video, denizens of the San Francisco art fringe, seem like they're heavily sedated. The story cuts between an aspiring filmmaker (Kyp Malone) who's trying to launch a feature based on the car accident that killed his parents and a punk vocalist (Amy Davis) waiting for her big break. Both are pushing 30 and none too happy about it, but they're so lethargic a strong wind could tip them over. Apathy is the dominant tone: when a celebrated young director at a seminar (Moritsugu) is asked, “What's it like to be an Asian-American filmmaker?,” all he can do is shrug. With Moritsugu stock players Valerie Soe and Craig Baldwin. 80 min.
