The Rum Shack

Please note that this event takes place at The Rum Shack.

The year is 2100 AD. In the underwater ruins of the old human city known as Miami, the only survivors, psychedelic sea creatures Edgar, Sally, Shivers, Gregor and Harold, sift through the visual artefacts of the past and share their favourites with us…

The driving force behind Barry Jenkins’ Oscar winner Moonlight, Borscht is an open-source filmmaking collective dedicated to articulating the idiosyncratic culture of Miami. The first international retrospective of Borscht took place at Glasgow Short Film Festival in 2014.

In partnership with Scalarama we’re thrilled to present the latest batch of the group’s hilarious, bizarre and uncategorisable works, fresh from the 10th edition of the lawless gonzo Borscht Film Festival. Expect fake found footage, lizard obsession, Japanese Bunraku puppetry and a fanimaltastic TV show. Served up with free Brugal rum cocktails and Miami sounds in the hotbox surroundings of the Rum Shack Dance Hall.
