"Slamdance Anarchy Shorts"
December 11th at 8pm (ArcLight Hollywood)

Synopsis: Slamdance was born out of an oppositional, D.I.Y. gesture, and Anarchy is our attempt to recapture the early spirit of the festival. The casual cinephile might associate the Anarchy program with avant-garde, transgressive, or underground cinema. It is all of these things and none of them. We like to think of Anarchy as an anti-genre. It is a form of resistance to dominant cultural paradigms. The films value innovation of form, violation of taboo, and disdain for institutional modes of representation.

Synopsis: In a small town, tucked deep in rural Florida, a group of blue-collar folks gather to participate in a bi-annual wild event, Figure-8 School Bus Racing!

Smash follows three drivers and the track promoter during a three week push to prepare for race night.
