ALTERED REALITIES
100 Minutes

Thu, Oct 21 @ 12:00 am – Sun, Oct 31 @ 10:00 pm

Just in time for Halloween, Altered Realities takes a look both outward and inward, at futuristic worlds ahead of us… and at what happens when the simmering tensions we’ve left behind boil over. From spooky ghost bride flick Koreatown Ghost Story to noir Manzanar love story The Loyal Betrayal, sink your teeth into a delicious dose of darkness with a side of intrigue.

The Discovery
Directed by Jill Von Dae
Sci-fi | 15 minutes
One day, on a mission, a peculiar piece of Captain Halser’s past catapults him into a chase for truth, leading him to find the true nature of his mission – one that puts him not on any other planet at all, but rather close to home.

The Loyal Betrayal
Directed by Tom Huang
Noir | 15 minutes | 13+ (Sexual situations, violence)
A man is caught in a web of love, murder and betrayal in this film noir set in the Manzanar Internment Camp during World War II.

Unfit
Directed by Will Kim
Animation | 4 minutes | 13+ (Strong graphics, violence)
“Unfit” is about our desire to hide from the unfit society until we realize hiding and escaping make us even more furious, rejected, lonely, and unfit.

Money Cat
Directed by Connor Kurth and Thomas Ireton
Horror | 15 minutes
When a financially-strapped couple encounters a mysterious Money Cat, one of them touts it as a good luck charm while the other remains a skeptic. They’re both surprised when good fortune seemingly befalls them, but everything comes with a price.
