PART ~THREE~ of ~SEVEN~
This blissfully bonkers whatzit from unclassifiable dance-comedy trio Cocoon Central Dance Team is part psychotropic performance art spectacle, part absurdist sketch show. The three Bing Bongs—Tallie Medel, Sunita Mani & Eleanore Pienta—lounge about, pass gas, and periodically break into wondrously strange dance routines, with outer space interludes, a serious consideration of doctor boners, and a 90s-style girl group meltdown along the way. It all plays like a live action cartoon piped in from a cotton-candy-colored alternate universe.

About the short:
"Rebirth of Empathy" - Part music video, part guided meditation with a focus on empathy and self-healing for the single "Rebirth of Empathy" off of the Future Museums debut cassette for Holodeck Records, Rosewater Ceremony. Future Museums is the project of Austin-based multi-instrumentalist, Neil Lord.
Jenni Kaye co-runs Hyperreal Film Club along with David McMichael and Tanner Hadfield. She has been a facilitator for the arts community in Austin for the past few years and has just started to re-focus on personal video and art projects and is looking forward to learning and collaborating over the next year.
VIDEOZONE is the collaborative visual project of Jenni Kaye and Melissa Cha. See more here: https://www.instagram.com/_videozone_/
Hyperreal Film Club was named "Best More-Than-Just-Film Series" by The Austin Chronicle

SECOND LOOK, a bi-weekly series running from December – March, brings back to the big screen seven films by women, all released in the past five years, all featuring diverse perspectives on both sides of the camera. With this series, we want to progress as an advocate for the current work of adventurous, diverse filmmakers and as a community film hub for Austin.
This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
