Riot (Nathan Silver | USA | 4 min.)
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.
Nathan Silver graduated from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts in 2005. Since then, he has written and directed five short films and six feature films. His films have played at festivals including Locarno, Tribeca, New York, AFI, Rotterdam, Viennale, Vancouver, Torino, Munich, and BAFICI and venues including MoMA and the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
