Barbarous Nights


Barbarous Nights: a drama in four shades and a prologue, grapefruit tumbleweed, and the great green moon; written and directed by Sam Creely, after the love letters of Lorca and Dalí.

Buster Keaton falls out of his film and into a poetic world, a 1930s both future and past.  Grapefruit roll through the sand like tumbleweed.  The streets are filled with optical shops.  There, a rush of travelers — a blind maiden struggling with the length of her dress, her nigh Victorian mother, a ridiculously attractive man peddling feathers — float through Buster’s nights like a dream as his sanity and the stoic stone face that made him famous start to crumble.
