Watch Liz Brennan's "Body Bags" Music Video: "The on-edge visuals for "Body Bags" have viewers witnessing the demise of a man at the hands of his remorseless, ruthless love. Brennan takes us all through the story, from lovebird's bliss on the beach to her lover's death by poison - followed by a trip through the graveyard.

Pieced together with bright cartoon clips of devious pop culture favorites and animated icons,"Body Bags" serves as a creative collage of deviance and destruction."





A haunting, artfully understated critique of American gun culture, Tim Sutton's third feature is loosely based around the 2012 massacre in Aurora, Colorado that took place during a multiplex screening of "The Dark Knight Rises." Employing a mesmerizing documentary-style technique and a cast of non-professional actors, DARK NIGHT follows the activities of six strangers over the course of one day, from sunrise to midnight, the shooter among them. Shot in Sarasota, Florida and lensed by veteran French DP Hélène Louvart (PINA, THE BEACHES OF AGNES), the dream-like visuals articulate both Sutton's carefully crafted landscapes and the characters' sense of alienation and suburban malaise. Winner of the Lanterna Magica Award at the Venice Film Festival following its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, DARK NIGHT is essential viewing, not only for art-house filmgoers, but for anyone invested in the debate over gun violence in America as well.
