The Star Eaters 2003, 24 min, video
A short and inconclusive treatise on women and gambling. The allure of risk- taking and excessive behavior, play acting and a penchant for failure combine in this fairy-tale set in the landscape of abandoned decay that was once a glamorous Atlantic City. A sentimental education at the seashore off-season. Featuring Jackie Smith, Alex Auder, Aaron Diskind and Ricardo Dominguez.
