A scene from #PostModem
Miami filmmakers Jillian Mayer and Lucas Leyva are once again packing their bags and heading to Park City, Utah to participate in this year's Sundance Film Festival, where their new short film, #PostModem, will screen. (Last year the duo screened The Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke at Sundance.) Written and directed by Mayer and Levya, the film’s futurist plot follows two Miami girls caught up in the world of internet identity. The story is told through a series of tweets and the backdrop of the film is chock-full of arresting visual arts scenes by Mayer. The film was originally screened in Miami last December, during the Borscht Film Festival. It was chosen from a pile of thousands to be one of the 65 short films to screen at Sundance, which kicks off tomorrow. Check out the trailer here.
