Hello everyone, welcome to the final week of the first season’s Horror Through History. This week we’re not showing an individual film, but rather a collection of iconic horror shorts. As you all know, ALTER’s primary focus on our channels is giving a platform for short films – as we believe that some of the most exciting new voices in filmmaking get their start innovating within the short medium. The 4 films we are showing today are no different, featuring a surrealist nightmare from Luis Buñuel and the massively influential Meshes of the Afternoon.
Even though all four films a tad experimental in their own right, and cover the 20s, 40s, and the 80s, these films paint an expansive portrait of how short films have always challenged the safe and mainstream nature of Hollywood filmmaking. Just the way we like our shorts today.
And like these shorts, I’ll keep this intro brief. See you all in the comments. Stay ALTERed.
The Fall of the House of the Usher, James Sibley Watson, Melville Webber – 1928
Un Chien Andalou – Luis Buñuel -1929
Meshes of the Afternoon – Maya Deren, Alexandr Hackenschmied – 1943
Darkness Light Darkness – Jan Švankmajer – 1989
