Event Originally produced by University of Southern California Cinematic Arts in 2017.
Summary An absurdist short comedy that follows three intersecting storylines, each of which deals with a different contemporary cultural/societal theme. Harold, a white man, is told by his doctor that nothing is wrong with him - and yet he can’t seem to find use of his legs - so he has to crawl and drag himself everywhere. Karen, meanwhile, is out to dinner with a “man-splaining” man. Each time she escapes to the bathroom to pop a pill, she returns to find that he has literally regressed in age. Michael, a young black man, finds himself at the center of a racially charged confrontation with the police after a man pulls a gun on him while declaring “I’m not a racist!” Layers of metaphor, physicalized through slapstick comedy and visual trickery paralleled between the main characters, build up to a surreal and absurd cacophony that acts as a commentary on our mutual distrust of one another, questions our definitions of sanity, and contemplates how to possibly stand up to it all.
