IndieCollect Shorts 2

Introduction by the IndieCollect Team

IndieCollect is a film preservation organization founded by Sandra Schulberg in 2010 to save and restore independent films. As part of Restored & Rediscovered, we are featuring a number of shorts that IndieCollect helped preserve. These are works that don’t often screen in theaters.

Days are Numbered (Christine Vachon. 18m. 1986): Michael Sean Edwards (the voice of Richard Carpenter in Todd Haynes’ Superstar) and a young Steve Buscemi star in this story of a man haunted by the grotesque memory of having stepped on a dead animal’s carcass. An Apparatus Production.
The Way of the Wicked (Christine Vachon. 15m. 1989): In Vachon’s fantastic parody of the Catholic Church, two women urge a young girl to bite the Host at her First Communion — a mortal sin — then rescue her amidst the hilariously bloody consequences. An Apparatus Production.
Home Movie (Jan Oxenberg. 12m. 1973): Using home movie footage and her trademark talent for parody, Oxenberg gives herself a cheerful lesbian childhood: “The thing I liked best about being a cheerleader was being with the other cheerleaders.” Restored with support from the Women’s Film Preservation Fund, Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
A Comedy in Six Unnatural Acts (Jan Oxenberg. 27m. 1975): In this send-up of lesbian stereotypes, each scene satirizes a different Hollywood film genre — the source of those stereotypes. Restored with support from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
