I’m in the airport about to travel to this year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin, flipping through the program to kill time. I’m not sure I’ll have time to finish a “most anticipated films of the festival” list like I did for TIFF, but so far this is my favorite synopsis that I’ve come across, for Boaz Debby’s short, My Father Is A Bird.
A young man realizes that he’s literally killing his feathery father every time he masturbates. Can a pubescent boy withstand the temptations that surround him without sending his dad to an early grave?
See, this is why I like Fantastic Fest. The programmers are just as f*cked up as I am. This looks amazing:
I don’t know if this was some bizarre fever dream that sprung from a literal interpretation of “choking the chicken,” and I don’t care.
