Description

ONLINE TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT. TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR SALE AT THE DOOR AT 7PM. CASH ONLY.

Rooftop opens our 15th festival with a flash of creativity, a splatter of inspiration, and short epic stories that could save your life.

A simple line drawing fleetingly becomes a recognizable face, then morphs into something disturbing. An obliterating splatter of paint describes the history of the universe. A prophesy of doom comes blissfully alive. The forces of creation and destruction battle epically within and around us at all times, at atomic, 8-bit and astronomical levels. David O’Reilly’s masterful fragmented universe The External World reminds us “Remember this is merely a cartoon. None of this is real. . . . There is only a silent emptiness spreading infinitely in all directions.” But at this, the start of Rooftop’s 15th year of existence, we begin with short films that celebrate creativity as a necessary means to survival. The piano players know, “She can’t kill me while I’m playing.”
