Short Film Screening - Zion Curtain

Went to a screening of my buddy Wendell Nielson's new short film Zion Curtain last night at a local pub where he'd made the arrangements. Good times!

Wendell, who wrote and also directed the piece, calls it a tale about silly laws.

It's set in Utah in the early '90s and draws its name from a law there that seems to be on the way out requiring a shield in front of bartenders in some restaurants and other establishments. Supposedly that discourages drinking, out of sight out of mind.

The story's not set in a bar. It's a slice of life among a group of friends including one who's facing jail time, and he's building to a fateful decision as the slice of life evening with friends unfolds.

The show was on a double bill with a short Wendell wrote in the early aughts, Deep Down in Florida, which was directed by Sam Esmail, who created Mr. Robot, so we had a pretty full evening with lots of friends and writers on hand.

Orlando's a fun area for me, always loads going on.
