Wholphin 6 Screening @ Mezzanine
Wholphin — the popular DVD magazine of short films — is back with issue 6 this summer, and tonight SF360 is putting on an advance screening of much of the DVD at the SoMa club Mezzanine. Doors at 7:00, show at 7:30. From the Wholphin page about the event:
Join us as SF360 presents the debut screening of Wholphin No 6 at Mezzanine on Thursday, June 19th. We will be screening a selection of films including a documentary about a class of Chinese third graders who hold a democratic election for classroom monitor and in the process end up hilariously, if unintentionally, mocking 300 years of American politics; a beautifully black, comic exploration of 70s England that isn’t, but could easily be, the prequel to A Clockwork Orange; a surreal dating short starring Michael Cera, with alternate audio versions featuring John Cleese and Daniel Handler; stunning footage of rarely-seen tropical reptiles and insects that are amazingly beautiful to watch, even when they’re eating each other head first; as well as films featuring great white sharks, America’s leading Bigfoot researchers, and a miniature seeing-eye horse.
You can reserve up to two tickets in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your name; reserved tickets are $8; it’s $12 at the door. It’s a 21+ venue; a limited amount of complimentary vodka will be offered by Kissui Vodka from Japan. (I’m not big on repeating corporate slogans, but I have to admit that the Kissui slogan makes me smile: When the Rising Sun Finally Sets.)
