This film screened at the Gen Art film festival, alongside Sebastian Guetierrez's feature 'Electa Luxx'. I was given tickets to this screening and, honestly, did not have high hopes for either of the films... I was more interested in spotting a few celebrities! Electra Luxx was a far departure from Guetierrez's most recent works (Gothika / Snakes on a Plane) and I was pleasantly surprised...
However, the most entertaining part of this screening was a the short film Blowing Bubbles, by unknown director Vaughn Juares.
This is a very short film, about 3 minutes long, but very perversely touching in it's own way.
I love old black and white films and I thought it was a great choice to tell this twisted comedy in a sort of noir-style.
The young actor who plays Bubbles the Clown, Joseph Schneider, gave a very matter-of-fact performance which cut perfectly against the ridiculous nature of this story.
The film is a great reminder that it is unnecessary for the object of obsession to make sense to our peers. Great!
