Films from the Public House

Short and Bittersweet

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Curator Jackie Moe gathers short films every month for a screening series at Edinburgh Castle Pub that harbors a vast proof of home grown film talent in the City. Tonight she’s assembled a cast with new and classic shorts from that burgeoning scene. Cathy Begien’s playful maturity and unintentional detachment are expressed in Blackout, The Dream Diaries and more. David Enos constructs careful, primitive histories and home-made portraits in Light My Fire (Jim Morrison) and In Service to the Waxen Moon (the Wolf-Man). Sarah Enid presents The Great Unknown, portrait of a young man with an old hand, and The Progeny, a fable about an unlikely family. Jose Rodriguez’s taste for depravity and longing for beauty fuel Boy Crazy, exploring sexuality and indulgence. Plus many more films from this hotbed of production.
