Riot (Nathan Silver | USA | 4 min.)

Additional Info

May 1992. During filmmaker Nathan Silver’s 9th birthday party, chaos erupts as he attempts to make a film based on the L.A. riots in his backyard. Nathan both directs and acts in the film, as his father captures the action on video. Uncooperative friends, a nine-year old director, and a nagging mother result in another kind of riot.
