Showdown San Francisco Style

When teams compete in the 48 Hour Film Project, they begin their competition weekend by drawing a genre randomly from a hat. (It’s happening in SF tonight at 715 Harrison St, 6:30pm).

One of the most feared genres across all cities and throughout the years has been Musical or Western. Teams that draw this may choose between making a musical or a western movie, and they get style points if they’re fearless enough to try for both.

When Chinese Takeout drew the genre in San Francisco, they dove in head first to create this compelling modern-day western.

The film won Audience Choice Award for its screening group, Best Film for San Francisco, and was screened at the Short Film Corner in Cannes. We guess that maybe it came out okay.

You can see what Chinese Takeout created for this competition year if you attend the screenings on June 14th at The Lumiere Theater in San Francisco.
