A giant pot is ascending from the sky. Twenty winsome damsels are landing on planet earth, coming out of the pot filled with 280 pounds of spaguetti. A battle for sauce and survival ensues.
2005, 6 min. (16mm transfer to video)
with George Kuchar, Marie Losier, Jason Livingston, Paul Shepard
Five winsome damsels picnic on the roof of a warehouse in charming Long Island City,
a forest of skyscrapers gleaming across the river. But when a swarm of flies interrupts
their feast of chocolate-covered pretzels and cream-pies, the young ladies run amok.
