Jason goes to Indiefest--Day 7

This night started with a surfing documentary, BETWEEN LAND AND SEA. But a rather surprising setting for a surfing doc, the North Atlantic coast of Ireland. Yeah, when you think of the Irish you think "surfing" right? Anyway, the cool thing about surfing documentaries is the cinematography. Cool freakin' surfing scenes, this film's got 'em. So cool, that even if you're kind of exhausted and can't really stay awake, every time you open your eyes, something freakin' cool looking is happening on screen. Maybe it would've been better to see this on ample rest and really pay attention. But as it was, it was a pretty great film to kinda power-nap through (at least, through bits of it.)

The next show started with a short film, PROGRAM, about virtual reality and a woman trying to use it to fix an old love that didn't work.

And that was the lead-in to the feature, SEQUENCE BREAK. Based on the description, this should've been a movie I enjoyed more. A Cronenbergian story of a boy who repairs old arcade video games, the girl who enters his life, and the mysterious game that takes over his life. But I didn't get around to writing this until a couple of weeks later. And now I can't remember any of it, so I guess it didn't make much of an impression on me.
