The Flying Electric (18 Mins)

Directed by Laura Colella

“The film takes place in one room in a boarding house on a rainy night. A young couple, who met earlier in the day and shared a romantic afternoon, sit and talk. They are repeatedly interrupted by a string of visitors.

The encounters are mostly confrontational in an indirect or abstract way, and their conversations share some oddly recurring elements and themes. There is a gradual blurring among the characters, and in the end, one may be left pondering the relationship between each of them and reality.”



LUCKY follows the spiritual journey of a 90 year old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town. Having out lived and out smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self-exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment.

Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch’s directorial debut, LUCKY, is at once a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.
