The Melwood Screening Room in Oakland (map) will be showing the Ann Arbor Film Festival tour for free on Friday, October 4, and Saturday, October 5 as part of the city's RADical Days. The tour program is comprised of numerous short films---a complete list is available here---one of which being "Bite of the Tail" by Seoul-born, LA-based Song E. Kim. It's a nine-minute animated film summarized in her words thus:
Wife is suffering from stomach pain and she firmly believes that she can find a cure from Doctor. However, Doctor has no idea how. Husband goes to an empty lot in search of a snake. When he hunts, he wears a beekeeper’s hat. Sister talks but who knows if it is the truth? Life is a constant struggle to find a right answer.A trailer is available on Kim's website. "Bite of the Tail" is part of Program B, which begins on Friday night at 9:15 and on Saturday the 5th at 7:30.
