These films may be short, but they make an impact. Seven works totaling 95 minutes will screen each Wednesday at Bryant-Lake Bowl for the next three weeks. Some shorts are esoteric, others are parody, and there’s even a naughty cartoon. Highlights include “Night Shift,” which spends a day with a bathroom attendant at a Los Angeles nightclub. “Pussy” is an animated work of one girl’s interrupted attempt at masturbating. “Come Swim” is the directorial debut of Kristen Stewart (yep, that Kristen Stewart). Other films tackle topics like technology, abortion, and high-diving into a pool. Grab a beer and take it all in at the back-room theater.
