MUFF 9 - THURSDAY, MAY 22, 2014

BAR POPULAIRE (6584 St-Laurent)

OPENING NIGHT

Doors: 8:00 p.m.
Screening: 9:00 p.m.

75 min with a 30 min intermission

From elegies to orgasms, MUFF’s Opening Night program at Bar Populaire serves up 18 short films for your pleasure (and pain). Our eclectic and dynamic two-part program features haunting explorations of celluloid surface and texture, hypnotic deployments of found-footage, monsters from beyond the grave, stag films, dancing robots, plant-hating women, and a cameo by a belching Barney from The Simpsons. A healthy cross-section of shorts engage creatively with the current Québec political scene. And where else but MUFF could you spend a musical evening with both Princess Stephanie and Bome Gnomeski, the adventurous twig-man who looks like a cousin of Jan Svankmajer’s Little Otik?

Programmers: MUFF Collective
