"A Truncated Story of Infinity" - A Short by Paul Trillo from Paul Trillo on Vimeo.

We really <3 this! It reminds us of something Kurt Vonnegut might have made!

Happy Pride! Here’s a lovely little short promo about first crushes that the wonderful Kate Dolan made as part of her Indiegogo campaign to help fund her short film Little Doll which is about a young girl struggling with her first crush on another girl.

FULL DISCLOSURE: We were too chicken to watch this but it’s probably amazing and terrifying and gross, so let us know how you get on with David Cronenberg’s latest short ‘The Nest’!

Here’s the earliest recognized film by Lars Trier (the von was adopted later) made with a Super 8 camera when he was eleven, Turen til Squashland: En Super Pølse Film (The Trip to Squash Land: A Super Sausage Film), courtesy of our friends at Dangerous Minds.

The two-minute stop-motion short was created by von Trier on a Super-8 camera when he was eleven. It’s technically quite impressive for a kid that age and ominously cheerful. There’s a bunny abduction and a sausage super-hero who I just don’t entirely trust. It seems worth noting that Trier had a non-normative childhood. His parents—who were lifestyle nudists—didn’t believe in punishment, but still managed to keep a distinct emotional distance from him. The controversial Danish director’s mother also told him on her deathbed that he was the product of an affair.

Embeded below is En Blomst  (1971), a short film Lars von Trier made when he was 15.

Trier submitted Orchidégartneren AKA The Orchid Gardener (1977) as part of his application to film school. Many of the aesthetic and thematic fetishes of his later feature length films (including the Dogme 95 films and his more recent return to the fantastic in Antichrist, Melancholia, and the recent Nymphomaniac) are already evident here. The film, as its subtitle says, tells “part of the story of Victor Marse,” an artist (played by Lars himself).
