Glasgow Short Film Festival presents Borscht Diez

Thu 28th September 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm

- £6.00

2100 A.D. Live from the underwater ruins of the old human city known as Miami, the only survivors, psychedelic sea creatures Edgar, Sally, Shivers, Gregor and Harold, sift through the visual artefacts of the past and share their favourites with us…

Borscht is an open-source filmmaking collective dedicated to articulating the voices of the New Miami and its idiosyncratic culture, providing a global stage for underrepresented (often female, Latin American, African-American, and Afro-Caribbean) identities in film. Borscht’s growing reputation culminated in Barry Jenkins’ feature Moonlight winning the 2017 Oscar for Best Picture. Borscht brought Jenkins and his co-screenwriter Tarell Alvin McCraney together, and was instrumental in getting the film made.

The first international retrospective of Borscht took place at Glasgow Short Film Festival in 2014; we’re thrilled to bring back the group’s latest work, fresh from the 10th edition of the lawless gonzo Borscht Film Festival. Expect fake found footage, lizard obsession, Japanese Bunraku puppetry and a fanimaltastic TV show. Served with cocktails and Miami sounds in the hotbox surroundings of the Rum Shack Dance Hall.
