The Virginia Film Festival is proud to support Wahoos working in the film world. This screening of five shorts features University alumni from 1978 to 2007. Fuu Ling Yoo (Caroline Stack) is a re-imagining of Tchin-Chao, The Chinese Conjurer, a 1904 Georges Méliès film that took advantage of the seemingly magical properties of film to astound audiences of the day. Superglue (Billy Duberstein) is a farcical comedy about a dinner party gone horribly wrong. Heloise (Demetrio Cuzzocrea, Beth Morgan, Lu Ugaz, Gayla Kraetsch Hartsough & Valerie Brotski) tells the story of the forbidden love between Heloise and her Professor Abelard. Hollywood Beat (Andrew Roda) introduces us to Adrian Del Toro, a member of the LAPD with a Napoleonic complex who takes “cleaning up the streets” to a whole new level. The Fiddler in the Darkness (Jen Lilley Wayne), is the tale of Christopher Wood, an orphan who discovers the magical power of his fiddle to bring the dead to life.
