|Desert Holiday Nightmare -
Finn Deivert & Bert Deivert, 8:35, video
Katz and Diaz are trapped in a room with only a sofa and television. But where is the remote? A “postmodern satire with references to more popular culture than anyone has a right to recognize! It is not politically correct, but it is political.”

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a pop-up book? This turbulent little music video about faith, paranoia and fear of air travel is guaranteed to induce motion sickness.

|The Unicorn – Alexander
Whitsett Pile, 8:00, video
“With a hanging story and excessively graphic content, this clay animation satirically purifies and invigorates all the elements of a modern day Hollywood blockbuster. The result is both disturbing and hilarious.” Warning: if you are in any way offended by clay-animated, in-your-face sex and violence, please close your eyes during this film.

8 PM - GOVERNMENT APPROVED:
|Government Approved! The Films of Warren G. Spaulding
– Travesty Films, 67:00, video
Rescued from the dusty shelves of the National Archives in College Park, MD, GOVERNMENT APPROVED! is a jaw-droppingly inane collection of authentic, taxpayer-funded informational films, works unseen since your days in high school or junior high (depending on how old you are) – and probably not even then. See a musical celebrating paperwork! See a puppet show about Social Security! See cartoons about violating your Constitutional rights! Meet “Your Enemy, the Grasshopper”. Sing along to songs about paying taxes. Authentic informational films containing very little information, hosted by noted authority Fenton W. Abernathy, Jr., who is as uninformative as the films he tries to explain. A welcome return, after nearly two decades, from Travesty Films, the semi-renowned humor collective that brought the world such film classics as INTESTINES FROM SPACE, ALCOHOLICS UNANIMOUS, INSURANCE SALESMEN FROM SATURN, and the comedy album TEEN COMEDY PARTY (featuring the classic Dr. Demento mainstay ROCK & ROLL DOCTOR).

Kellin, his beautiful prisoner, is gradually succumbing to a disease that will transform her from young girl into monstrous murdering beast, while the Doctor’s assistant has plans of his own. A feature from the filmmaker who won the Low Budget Film Award for SATAN’S PSYCHO GHOUL at MCF 2002.
